If traveling to Cancun isn’t in your immediate plans, and more’s the pity, another travel suggestion would be to take your grandchildren on a tour of some of the U.S. National Parks. Trefoni Michael Rizzi and his traveling buddy, “Tedrick De Bear,” have co-authored a guidebook to the National Parks entitled Teddy’s Travels � America’s National Parks which makes the journey as much fun as the destination.
The book, which also includes a way to personalize the trip for both of you, features full color photographs and graphics; first hand information; web addresses; travel teasers (see below) and scavenger hunts designed to engage your little ones. There are also pages included in the spiral-bound book for scrapbooking treasures found along the trip, jotting down memories, and for collecting park stamps at each location you visit (think character autographs at Disney World.)
For more information on the 128 page book which sells for $19.95, visit www.teddystravels.com.
