This Adventures Series Travel Guide to Austin is written JUST for elementary school aged kids and tweens. This book gives kids information about their destination to teach them and excite them about their trip! Kids who learn about the trip BEFORE they go retain more information. They’ll remember their trip more and be able to add this learning experience to long term memory. Imagine using your vacation to improve their school test scores and educational foundation because that is exactly what you are doing – investing in your trip AND your child’s educational foundation.
The Adventure in London Travel Guide Book is unlike anything you can just google for yourself.
I know because I tried to do that myself before traveling with my kids!! I have used my teaching background and mom knowledge to create a travel guide that includes FUN information and activities to help retain information AND – let’s face it, when kids are engaged and having fun then YOU are having fun, too!
Each of these guides has been tried on my own personal kids! They work! Mom tested – teacher approved!

This is a great book. Kids can keep busy while learning something. I like the combination of facts along with places for kids to color and/or write things down. It seems like a good way to keep the kids interested and engaged. Great idea!
Glad you loved it, too! Kids can have fun and learn at the same time! 🙂 Thanks for sharing your opinion.

As the mom of two boys, I love so many features of this book. It encourages nonfiction reading, and has room for my boys to create their own versions of what they see and experience. It also creates a lasting memory book. I would highly recommend this book to friends.
I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Educational and fun is the goal!
Great book. It is great that you are local and can go check out all of the activities. You don’t even need to go far to be on vacation in Austin.

As a former homeschooling mom, I was always looking for creative ways to take the learning out of the classroom. This book was such a help! My boys loved so many of the activities.
