City guides that kids (and parents) can love
Lylah M. Alphonse
It's a big world out there -- especially if you're little. With so much travel information geared for grown-ups, the ABC Travel Guides for Kids series stands out. The short, simplified guidebooks are filled with facts and photos of landmarks and must-see locations in a child-friendly format. Plus, the detailed index and a map on the back make it easy for parents to find the sights. There are six cities available -- Atlantic City, Baltimore, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and San Diego -- and the guides cost $7.95 each online at amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, and target.com. For more information, go to kidstravelguides.com. [More]

Great City Guides for Kids
This company has been on my radar for a long time now, so I'm very pleased that I was finally able to feature them in yesterday's "Gearing Up" column! The ABC Travel Guides for Kids are part guidebook, part picture book, and just perfect for smaller kids.
