GIVEAWAY and REVIEW: Utah 4 Kids Adventure Guidebook

Utah4Kids Guidebook

For a few years now, I have been toying with the idea of putting together an Enjoy Utah book that people can have to refer to while they are out and about. Of all of the ideas I had about the book, the Utah 4 Kids Adventure Guidebook is all that and more! I decided to not put a book together, but tell people about this book instead.

I was introduced to this guidebook by my mom, who picked us up a copy at the Salt Lake Community College bookstore.

I love that it is the perfect size to fit in your purse. It’s a book you can truly keep on hand and refer to when needed. Because of the way it’s formatted with the fun little Fardoodles and drawings, kids are excited to pick it up and see what adventures await them. “Fardoodles are fun little creatures who live in caves. Fardoodles have big noses and funny toes, and it is their job to engage children in fun across Utah. You can watch for them throughout the book.”

This book is great for your own kids, but is also a fun gift to give for birthday presents, Christmas, or any time gifts!

The guidebook is divided into five different parts: Money Savers, Creative Time, Connection Time, Healthy Motions, and Rainy Day Bonus. Each section is full of places to go and things to see across Utah, as well as online resources and things you can do at home.

“Life should be an exciting adventure full of imagination,” said Samantha Simon, author of Utah 4 Kids Adventure Guidebook. “As we have amazing adventures across the beautiful state of Utah, we can all experience the wonderful advantages that this place has to offer. Help kids prosper through healthy motions and creative imagination.”
