Epcot 2012: A Planet Explorers Travel Guide for Kids by Laura SchaeferEpcot is probably the most unique theme park on Earth. The combination of Future World and the World Showcase gives the park its wonderful World's Fair spirit. Where else can you blast off to Mars, watch Michelangelo at work, visit Italy, eat lunch in Japan, and soar through the sky over California–all in a single day? It's the perfect place to try a French pastry for lunch and German schnitzel for dinner. You'll be dazzled by the park's gardens and live performers. At the end of the day, Illuminations: Reflections of Earth will awe your family with lights, fireworks, lasers, water fountains, music, and fire.

And now there's a kid-friendly guide to the park that lives right on your smartphone (or other mobile device)! Epcot 2012: A Planet Explorers Travel Guide for Kids by Laura Schaefer is an e-book written just for kids aged 8-12. It includes insider information about what you and your kids will see at every attraction and pavilion. There are fun facts ("each Test Track car has 22 wheels, but you can only see four of them"), tips, restaurant listings (the Garden Grill revolves slowly through the Living with the Land attraction"), and photos for every World Showcase country and Future World pavilion.

As an added bonus, the e-book is an interactive learning tool where kids can click on linkable words and phrases to find historical data and in-depth descriptions. The book concludes with an Epcot knowledge test, tips for the World Showcase, and a map. Have fun!
