Fun on the Run: Travel Games and Songs
by Joanna Cole and Stephanie Calmenson
A collection of word games, memory games, license plate games, writing games, and geography games. The only problem is the book's hefty weight, a crowded page layout, wordy instructions, and the prep work needed for the writing and geography games. Keep in mind that having to write and read in the car could be a recipe for motion sickness. Also, the games are very American-centric, but they can be easily adapted to include Canadian place names. Despite these drawbacks, the jokes, riddles, and songs should keep everyone entertained.
