Review by Publisher Summary 2

National Geographic offers this hefty top-ten-list collection of sites to visit with the family. The attractions cater to families with a large variety of purposes and interests. While most are found within the US, an international section suggests the top ten family destinations in certain areas of Latin America, Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Africa, and Asia. The first section comprises regional lists. Remaining sections contain headings that include: family reunions, shorelines and beaches, sports, the great outdoors, wheels and rails, arts, health, nature and science, history and the arts, and seasonal celebrations. Concluding chapters offer travel, packing, and scrapbooking tips. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
