LANGUAGE:English

"lonely planet have struck pay dirt! This book is genius. Over one hundred and twenty pages of time passing activities to prevent that dreaded 'Are we nearly there yet?" question. It has a high quality desgn - laid out in an easy to digest manner, in an font that's very clear, using a humourous approach and with plenty of images and borders to make it interesting.

Although there are a few tried and tested games in there, even those have alternative spins, poetic I Spy, anyone?
There are a few that need counters and would be too fiddly to play in the car, however for the most part the word/sight games are great. There a few puzzles and games that require looking at the book whilst playing - I'd suggest those at rest stops or at the destination - I'm sure that cleaning up the car is not the planned outcome of playing these games :)

The cover seems fairly hard wearing and the book is about 2/3 of A4, so isn't too cumbersome to travel with.

If you've been on longer journeys with one or more children you'll wonder why this book doesn't exist already... In fact, you'll probably practice some of the games on shorter journeys.

"Oh boy, if you are on a trip with a bunch of wiggly, disgruntled kids who can't wait to get to their destination then this may be just what you need to ease the pain of the refrain...."Are we there yet?"

Lonely Planet Kids has just the book for you. It is portable, colourful and crammed full of word games, solo games, silly games, memory games counting games and much, much more. It has many difficulty levels so the whole family can join in on the "let's bust the boredom syndrome" event. The lovely thing is that no pens, paper or dice are required, all you need is the book itself and a curious, creative spirit to engage in the fun. And guess what? Answers are included at the end of the book. Hurray!!! If questions and activities are not solved (and quickly), it could be a really, really, really, long trip. So brilliant that they are included.

This book is part of Lonely Planet Kids Family Activity Range books. Other titles include: My Travel Journal and My Family Travel Map. Here's a little more information for you...
