Top Customer Reviews
I doubt, too, that the average vehicle could contain all the storage bins full of supplies, coolers full of healthy snacks for the "carschool cafeteria", and backpacks full of books and toys that the kids pack for themselves--and still have any room for groceries, luggage, etc.. If you spend a LOT of time in the car, it might be worth the upkeep and expense to equip the car this way.
Still, there are good car activities in this book, mostly of the 'find stuff out the car window' type, though she offers some fun activities with paper money and coins that kids will like. And the mental math games are fun.
Basically, if you strip away the 'laughable/too distracting to the driver' activities, then this book is really no better or worse than any other car entertainment book.
Many fun but completely impractical suggestions. The more doable ideas are not so creative. It is not a bad book but didn't offer anything new to us. Think music games, word games, craft projects, books on tape and storage. However if you are at a loss maybe this book is for you.
