the Backseat Experience"
book kit is a piece of good fortune for both children and
parents heading out on a road trip. Simply present Kids
Travel to the kids, and enjoy! The spiral-bound book is
filled with things to do, and comes with all the supplies
necessary to play the suggested games, activities, and
quizzes. A plastic pouch is bound right into the book, and

a pad of printed paper is also part of the book, and

spread features 65 license plate samples, with spaces to
record when and where each plate was spotted. Classic car
game directions are included, as well as quizzes that
involve parents! (Kids get to quiz their parents and have
the answers right in front of them). "Lost on
Earth" is a backseat game that plays much like
battleship, except that kids are looking for Amelia Earhart,
Butch Cassidy, and the like. A geography quiz, complete with
a colorful, detailed map of North America, is included, as
well as dice games, parchesi, mysteries, palm reading, song
lyrics, sign language, decoders, hand games, and more.
favorite game is Country/Town Bingo. Each child keeps his or
her own bingo sheet, featuring such things as traffic signs,
gas pumps, birds, and roosters for the Country Bingo, and
school buses, fire hydrants, and cats for the Town Bingo
game. As kids spot these sights, they get to cross off a
tile on their bingo sheet.
is fantastic. All of the supplies needed to enjoy the games
and activities are supplied, and attached to the book so
that Kids Travel is very easy to use. Not only that, it is
attractive, with truly interesting games and colorful,
sturdy pages. We recently took the book on a road trip,
and it kept the children busy for a fair portion of the car
ride. They loved it, and we did too.
