The Travel Scrapbooks were a Historical Collection of books and accompanying items released in 2002 and eventually retired. The three characters focused on are Samantha Parkington, Kit Kittredge, and Molly McIntire.


Cited as "adventures" on the covers, the scrapbooks focused on the three included characters going on trips to new locations for various reasons. A character or characters connected to them, staying behind, would sign in the front of the scrapbook, noting that they had gifted the scrapbook to the character and asking to document their trip. The scrapbook is set-type, with occasional scribbles of "handwriting", and documents the entire trip from the home location to the final destination, including various stops on the way.[1] Small cardboard or plastic items were included (stored in glued down pockets), including fold out papers, as "pull-out souvenirs."

Samantha and Molly both received new outfits and accessories to accompany their books. Kit was not given a new outfit or accessories; she instead wore her birthday dress on the cover.
