Stanley Park, over 1000 acres of forested parklands was recently named the best urban park in the world by Trip Advisor. This amazing piece of nature has an amazing amount of things to see and experience. Over 200 birds species live in the park, there are swimming pools, statues, the Vancouver Aquarium, the miles-long seawall (which has its own Ability Guidebook) and more! If you ever visit Vancouver, you MUST visit this park!!!!
I am so pleased that Random House Magazine is carrying a series of blogs about the Social Justice Book List. I’m even more pleased that one of them is mine–I think I have a lot to say on this subject!
Mount Rushmore is one of those places every American should visit! It truly is inspiring and there is good reason that so many international visitors make the long trek to Sout Dakota to visit.
The Langelinie area in Copenhagen not only has the Little Mermaid, it has an amazing park full of monuments and history and a pier that and marina that welcomes thousands of tourists as their cruise ships dock nearby. These Ability Guidebooks are a support for people with autism who have stress from new situations. I hope it opens some doors!
Machu Picchu is one of the most wonderful places to visit in the world! It is a complex site that includes a bus ride up a mountain, climbing a rocky thin path up to the citadel and then the amazing ruins themselves. I hope you have an amazing visit!
This Ability Guidebook is to support a very easy visit to the Dog on the Tuckerbox. Some Guidebooks are very detailed depending on the complexity of the site. This is one of those easy-to-visit places…once you get to Gundagai!
This is a very good feeling. I have just finished the ninth and final book for Riga. It has taken a pretty good numbers of hours and effort but I’m confidant that having this many books for one city can make a difference. By creating nine outing books that gives a teacher nine monthly field trip options. It gives a family a whole list of places to go.
It is hard to believe that there are now 72 Ability Guidebooks! They are a labor of love and every time I finish one I picture it helping one person get out into the world. Having this to study might make all the difference for a kid’s success on a classroom field trip.
If you speak Latvian and want to translate it, I would sure appreciate it!
I had a terrific time presenting in Chicago at NNSTOY. I only had one free afternoon but was able to make a book for a couple of great outings. There are now books for the Art Institute of Chicago and the Taste of Chicago. This new book is for Grant Park and it’s amazing art, memorials and fountains.
- The Freedom Monument is in many ways the heart of Riga. The nearby Opera and the Freedom Monument have played important roles in the history of Latvia. Enjoy your visit!
