This year! Don't take your children on vacation. Let them "take you."
Pat McGrath Avery and Joyce Faulkner are creating a series of books written for children to educate them and their parents on all there is to do right in one's own backyard. This one is "Fun Days in Pittsburgh" and touches on a portion of what is available to do.
In the process the series presents an opportunity for parents to involve their chilkdren in the vacation plans. A truly unique approach, in a format that will hold a childs attention and have parents sharing rather than telling their children what they will be doing.
It is frankly amazing how many people have no idea what there is to do close to home and better yet, much of it is free or relatively inexpensive..

Pittsburgh is a great place for kids. There's libraries and museums and parks and trails. Come see the birds at the National Aviary and animals in the Zoo. There are trolleys and inclines. You can learn about history, dinosaurs, robots, and ketchup. Complete with beautiful photos of the city, Fun Days in Pittsburgh is a guide for kids of all ages.
