Great for Older Kids to Entertain during a Drive
on August 16, 2015
Truth be told, my kids did not like this book as much as the Rand McNally travel activity book - but that said, it's mostly attributed to the fact that they are on the younger end of the spectrum regarding the age limit on this book. My kids are 6 and 7 respectively, and they noted that it was a lot of writing in there, and while they could read it just fine, they expected more activities in there. My nephew however, loved the book. He enjoyed the random facts, the road games, and the "before travel" tips such as suggesting items to pack featured in the book. He also noted that it would've been nice to have more "written" activities in the book, but was okay with the given selection. This book would definitely benefit kids who are independently reading, don't get carsick while reading, and who have other adults/kids in the car to engage with for many of the activities in the book. If you're looking have your kid sit quietly in the backseat with a book, this is likely not the best bet for you, as many of the activities involve talking with other people in the car - we like engaging with our family while driving, so this was a very fun book.
