The Kid’s Guides are pocket-sized books for kids ages 6-12 and chock full of tips from kids in the know on where to go, where to eat, what to see and where to get the best souvenirs.  Fun facts, games and quizzes offer entertainment for the whole family — whether exploring a new city while on vacation or having an adventure in their own backyard.
