Due to popular demand, an updated version of “Route 66 for Kids” guidebook for parents with children is available in print form for the first time in more than a decade.
A Kindle version of “Route 66 for Kids” long has been available, after author Emily Priddy printed a few dozen copies of the first edition in 2003.
At the time, small-run printings of books were expensive. But questions about buying a print version of “Route 66 for Kids” persisted.
The cost hurdles of small-run publishing effectively ended with CreateSpace, an Amazon affiliate. Priddy was impressed enough with the printing quality of her first Route 66-related novel, “Greetings from Coldwater,” she brought back “Route 66 for Kids” in book form.
Here’s the description of the book:
From cowboys to Indians, dinosaurs to astronauts, corn dogs to ice-cream sundaes, Route 66 is a virtual playground of kid-friendly businesses, museums and roadside attractions stretching 2,448 miles from Chicago to Los Angeles. Route 66 for Kids offers an overview of these attractions, complete with addresses, phone numbers, hours, admission prices and other information to help families plan an unforgettable journey down the Mother Road. Join Route 66 expert Emily Priddy — author of the novel Greetings from Coldwater — as she shows you where to catch a drive-in movie, pet a wild burro or sleep in a wigwam on America’s most storied highway.

As for a Kindle edition, it will be available next month. The original Kids on 66 website, partly inspired by her late rat terrier, is still around.
