The Lovereading4Kids comment

Put quite simply, if you’re looking for a travel diary, a memory-maker, a doodle pad, a story-storer, a brain-engager, a boredom-stopper, a kick-starter, an idea-waker, a picture-keeper, a captain’s log or simply a thought-provoking book then look no further than this one.

This is an absolutely wonderful book to keep your child well and truly amused on a journey and during a holiday whether at home, on abroad or between the two. It’s interactive and great fun with spaces to draw a map of the journey, write your experiences of the journey or just draw what you see out of the window at any given time. If you’re going abroad you could write in some key words that you might encounter when you arrive and while on holiday you there’s space to write what you did each day in the form of a diary. There’s even space to write about your ‘new experiences’ and how you rated them.
