Parenting can be so frustrating ¿ especially when your kids seem bored and are begging for creative ideas on something fun to do. Most of the time you end up at the local playground or amusement center for lack of better ideas. Or, maybe you¿re a relative or friend who has young visitors coming to town and you don¿t know where to begin planning fun adventures that are guaranteed to please kids. ¿Entertaining children shouldn¿t be so hard --- we wanted to make having fun family time easy. So, we researched and wrote this book¿ say parents/authors George and Michele Zavatsky. After the tremendous success of their top selling travel books, KIDS LOVE OHIO and KIDS LOVE INDIANA, the couple spent the last year taking children on excursions to all of the most unique places in Pennsylvania. After 1000 hours of research/publishing, the result is their book, KIDS LOVE PENNSYLVANIA. KIDS LOVE PENNSYLVANIA has been kid-tested and the descriptions include great hints on what kids like best. This informative guide contains 268 pages packed full of almost 900 places and events specifically designed for children between the ages of 2 ¿ 15. Kids can ¿discover¿ oil, meet Ben Franklin, or watch favorite toys being made. The book will tell you how canal boats, ships and railroads (straight, inclined and curved!) changed history and even how to find Christopher Columbus¿ personal belongings. You¿ll know where to go to stand side-by-side a coal-miner or pretzel-twister (and even get to try your hand at it), watch a glass bowl form before you eyes or learn the secrets of perfect pottery, baskets, guitars and motorcycles. Another weekend you¿ll have all the travel details you need to go behind the scenes of a beehive farm or stamp your own coin, touch the ¿Bell¿ and be ¿Rocky¿. Of course, there¿s plenty of details on nationally known sites like Amish homes, schools (and food!); Lincoln/Gettysburg museums (¿hang out¿ with Lincoln on the train heading into town); and the wonders of nature in PA - the ¿Grand Canyon¿, the ¿Niagara¿, Little Horses and the Famous Phil. If you¿re hungry, KIDS LOVE PENNSYLVANIA knows where to be a candy taste-tester, make potato chips, pierogies and pizza, or tell you how to eat your way through apple, berry, maple and pumpkin festivals. Unusual theme restaurants include a real log cabin, a railroad depot, or a service station. The book is formatted in 9 geographical zones providing addresses, telephone numbers, websites, directions, admissions and descriptions to save lots of time. It¿s a wonderful resource to make short vacation plans or to get to know your hometown area better. You will probably find there are at least 50 things to do within an hour of your home! Best of all, if you have a limited budget, don¿t worry ¿ the book has found lots of places to visit for little or no charge!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
