The kids will have so much fun with this book, you'll never hear those dreaded words "Are we there yet?" When does a great trip begin? When you get in the car! If you have this jam-packed guide with you, you can have fun all along the way. Just see how fast the time passes when you're singing silly songs, stumbling over tongue twisters, telling jokes and riddles (What is a twip? A wide on a twain), and playing games. Write down all the information about your trip--who's along, how you're traveling, whether you're having a good time or not--so you can keep a log of the journey. Win a game of spotting cars, billboards, and other objects on the road. Play travel bingo. Name a car for every letter of the alphabet, and you're the winner! Do picture puzzles, solve rebuses to come up with some state capitals, and try to name 20 things wrong with a very nonsensical car. Make your way through a maze to help a family find its way home. All you need is a pencil. Wrap your tongue around some tongue twisters, and see who stumbles over the words first. Ever hear of a "hinkie pinkie"? It's a ridiculous two-word rhyme like "lucky ducky," and you'll have a riot coming up with them. Just draw a picture or tell everyone in the car the definition (What's an ape with lots of energy?), and wait for them to come up with the answer (a spunky monkey). 48 pages (all in color), 8 1/4 x 11.
