Geared toward kids ages 5-12, Little Passports follows globetrotting characters Sam and Sofia as they travel the world on a GPS-enabled scooter. Originally designed as a home subscription service, Little Passports will now be exclusively offered to JW Marriott San Antonio guests through the resort's Range Riders Kids' Club.

Participants will receive the Little Passports - JW Marriott San Antonio Edition journal featuring the geography, history and points of interest of Texas and the beautiful Hill Country.  Each of the 24 pages in the interactive guide is designed to teach, challenge and entertain young explorers. 

"We are excited about Little Passports' partnership with the JW Marriott San Antonio," said Amy Norman, co-CEO and co-founder of Little Passports. "Our company's focus is to provide fun and engaging ways for children to learn about the world, which fits wonderfully with the programs created for the San Antonio resort's Range Riders Kids' Club. We're happy to be a part of bringing families together not only with Little Passports' subscriptions but also with the JW Marriott's family-friendly San Antonio property."

The Little Passport experience at the San Antonio resort is complimentary and will be offered on Saturdays and holidays throughout the 2014 summer season.  Reservations are recommended through the Range Riders Kids' Club. For information, call 1-210-276-2500, extension 4347.
