Summary This graduate project is an illustrated children's book called Vacation everyday! The children's guide to occupations in the tourism industry and is about various careers within the tourism field. Responsibilities and rewards of each position are covered. It is intended for 2nd through 5th grade level kids as an introduction to this industry and can be read by parents, teachers, or child readers. Vacation Everyday! also includes a teacher's guide as well as a companion video. To help develop this book, it was taken to elementary schools around Los Angeles and read to kindergarten through 3rd graders. The feedback of students and teachers was used to improve the content of the book. The hope is that this project will foster children's interest in the tourism industry and inspire them to study tourism and hospitality related areas in college. Future industry leaders are never too young to inspire!
