This book is a favorite of my kids when we go on road trips. It suggests different places for them to visit in each state; some of which may not be well known but are worth the time to visit. It also has activities and car games for them to do as well. The best thing is they give us the directions and learn how to read a map.

I paired this book with the fictional Dora the Explorer at the Carnival. On a much simpler version, Dora also uses a map. When we went to Florida the youngest was

National Geographic Kids Ultimate U.S. Road Trip Atlas by Crispin Boyer – This book took quite a long time for my son and I to read through. We read about a US state each day and then enjoyed the extra activities throughout. Interesting to read what is thought to be special about states I’ve lived in.

Crispin Boyer lives in San Francisco and writes about history, wildlife, and technology. He and his wife, Ramah, are the lord and lady of a 1914 Victorian that is 700 times smaller than a typical castle but almost as drafty. Their microwave might not roast an ox like most medieval ovens, but at least their bathroom isn't a hole in the wall that empties into a stinky moat.
