Add a sweater (and perhaps an umbrella) to your suitcase and pick up a copy of Kidding Around Portland: What to Do, Where to Go, and How to Have Fun in Portland. The kids can color their way to the City of Roses, to Portland's "Roll-on Deodorant Building." Author Deborah Cuyle will show young explorers where Portland gets its four nicknames and what pioneer children used instead of Frisbees! Cruises on stern-wheelers and visits to Mount Hood will make this city memorable for any child. And if Portland doesn't fit your summer plans, you can find a Kidding Around book for almost any major city in America. Reviewed by Anna Claire Straughan.
