When Grandchildren Help Plan a Trip

Since several of the super grannies I interviewed for my book SUPER GRANNY (due out in March and now in page proofs) told me about trips they had taken with their grandchildren, I was delighted to talk with Heather Larson as she was researching her article on involving children in planning a trip.

I was especially happy to tell Heather the story about Dee Poujade of Oregon, whose seven-year-old granddaughter, Michaela, did so much of the planning for their glorious week in London. Some of the other ideas in Heather’s article involved going to a place where a child has written a school report, involving children in your own hobbies, and capitalizing on their interest in favorite books.

To read Heather’s lively article, which was posted earlier this month on the really helpful site, www.grandparents.com, go to: http://www.grandparents.com/gp/printarticle/travel/travel-tips/article/getaways-that-grandchildren-can-plan.html

Sally - I am Michaela's mother and I just wanted to tell you how excited she is about all of this! It's fabulous enough for her to be able to make these trips with my mother (her "Mimi", btw). Then, to get mention in a few articles in magazines hardly anyone reads was pretty cool, too. To be in a book?!? I don't have the words. Thank you. Your book will be on my AMAZON wish list! I can't wait to share it with her teacher!
