This now classic guidebook has become the definitive
resource for exploring the southern half of Maine with
children of all ages.  The idea for the first edition came
about one rainy Memorial Day weekend in 1997 when
the author had taken her two children to a local book-
store.  Looking over shelves full of Maine guidebooks,
she was amazed there was nothing that specifically
offered things to do with children. Surely with most of
the population living in the southern half of the state
and over 9 million tourists visiting annually, this was a
book waiting to be written.
     Readers obviously agreed.  Adventures for all four
seasons are included.  Locals as well as tourists will
be delighted by this indispensable guide written by this                                  Order Now
Maine mother.  The author has included a table of
contents as well as an index by attraction and an index
by location.  So if readers find themselves in say,
Boothbay Harbor or Ogunquit, they can flip to the back
and find out what to do in that town.  Very clever.  There
is good reason this little gem is still going strong into its
fourth edition.
