Synopses & Reviews
These colorful, fun-filled books are perfect for capturing kids' interest and keeping them busy the whole trip. Four different books ensure there's plenty of entertainment on the way there and back. The My First Backseat Books series means the younger ones aren't left out either. Features of the series include:
- Updated maps! This is a great first atlas to introduce young ones to the ways of the road. Each state features a simplified road map, state facts, and a fun state-related activity. Answers for all games and puzzles are in the back of the book with an index.
- Travel games, songs, decoding puzzles, dot-to-dots, mazes, and word scrambles are a few of the cool activities in this book.
- Cities, National Parks, and popular attractions in the six main regions of the U.S. are featured in this book. Each city or place includes a brief description and a different activity.
- The largest book in the series with more than 200 pages of games and puzzles.
For years, Rand McNally's state-by-state road atlas for children has been an important part of family travel. For 1999, we've created a completely new book with great new state maps of the United States as well as all-new games, illustrations and a fresh, bright cover design. Features include: Real road maps of each state (just like the grown-up road atlas) with kid-level detail and appeal - State information like the capital, official bird, flower, tree and state nickname Games and puzzles for each state in the U.S. (and Canada and Mexico, too!) Map reading skills incorporated into some games and puzzles Maps of Canada and Mexico
