Preschool books about vacation

Yesterday I shared a lesson plan for a vacation themed week (go check it out)! This is the perfect theme to introduce non-fiction texts, I’m a huge fan of the materials available from AAA. If you aren’t a AAA member, see if any of your colleagues or parents are, they might be able to pick up some travel guides for you.  Many local tourism organizations are also more than willing to send you free information, you can often request info through their websites.  These are both very cost-effective ways to gather non-fiction texts (that are usually full of beautiful photos) for your classroom library.

Even with all of those great non-fiction books, there is always room for story books too. Here are a few of my favorite vacation-themed picture books (links are affiliates).

Depending on the types of vacations your students have taken, there are certainly other books that could fit into this category as well – books about the beach, museums, aquariums, national parks, and different cities.  What are your favorite vacation books?
