TRAVEL BOOKS FOR CHILDREN

Two new children's books from The Mountaineers are part of the publisher's "Let's Discover" series. They are "Let's Discover Bryce and Zion National Parks" and "Let's Discover The Grand Canyon."

Both books, by Lynnell Diamond, keep children entertained during long hours on the road or in the campground with pictures to color, crosswords, puzzles, coded messages, dot-to-dots, mazes and word finds. Activities help children identify the plants and animals they're likely to see and tell them fascinating facts about the region's cultural and natural history. The books are designed for children 6 to 11 and can be worked on with or without the parents' help.Each book is $4.95 plus a $2 charge for shipping and handling. The books are available at many bookstores or directly from the publisher by calling 1-800-553-4453 and using your VISA or Mastercard. Mountaineer books are available at many Utah bookstores including REI, BYU Bookstore and Sam Weller's.

Other "Let's Discover" books cover The Petrified Forest and Capitol Reef, Canyonlands and Arches National Parks.

COURIER TRAVEL

The second edition of "A Simple Guide to Courier Travel" is hot off the press. The book's step-by-step format tells you how you can travel to foreign destinations as a courier for a delivery company and save as much as 85 percent on air fare. A courier gives up his check-on luggage in exchange for the reduced air fare. The delivery company then uses the baggage space for parcels it is sending to Europe, Asia and other foreign destinations. The delivery company provides the discounted air fare to avoid the expense of having an employee go. Tickets are round-trip, booked on major airlines and guaranteed. The guide can be purchased for $12.95 plus $3 postage and handling by calling 1-800-344-9375 or writing to GUIDE, P.O. Box 2394, Lake Oswego, OR 97035.
