Are we there yet? Today's technology has equipped a tech-savvy generation capable of pinpointing travel destination route and arrival time before you have even pulled off on to the road. Our family road trips vary between surreal silence of headphoned devices mesmerizing backseat buddies to hilarious highway sing-a-longs. Preparing for the potential threat of boredom, we plan ahead, traveling with books, games, and activities to keep the carpool morale soaring. As the mom to three children each equally brilliant and sarcastic in their own unique ways, it's fantastic when I discover fascinating ways to keep the whole family entertained and educated, as well.

Plan Family Fun Travel Adventures with National Geographic Kids Books

Entertaining our family collectively is always memorable, especially when we're in unchartered territory. Planning activities as our personal event planner is one of my favorite roles as a parent, however, there comes a time when the excitement slowly begins to fade as exhaustion takes over. One of my tried-and-true parenting life hacks is to prepare in advance for down time for each and every member of the family. When I consider all of the essentials we will need along the way, age-appropriate educational, entertaining books and activities serve as individual and group recreation. National Geographic Kids Books have been our go-to book series for fascinating facts, statistics, and stories. Check out a few of our family favorites-

"If you're trying to decide which of our country's amazing national parks to visit, NG Kids, together with the National Park Trust, has created National Parks Guide U.S.A. Broken down into regions of the country, this handy guide has all you need to make your visit to these treasured parks an experience your family will never forget. Filled with color photos, information on animals, fascinating lists, fun facts, maps, cool things to do, conservation tips, and much more -- think of this book as your trusted guide to these most majestic of places."

The Ultimate U.S. Road Trip Atlas contains maps, games, interesting facts, vibrant pictures of everything from wacky road signs to national monuments, and boredom busters (who can spot the wackiest road sign?) to make your next journey an adventure to remember. Every state is featured and includes a map of the state, 5 cool things to do there, fun facts about the state and the animals that live there and even quirky roadside attractions. And, in case this comes in handy, helpful traffic laws you won't believe (who knew you couldn't drive any skunks INTO Tennessee?).

"See the silly side of travel as you explore the wackiest landmarks from around the world -- a place where you can walk in real dinosaur tracks, a hotel where you sleep in an igloo, a crazy beard festival, a UFO museum, and so much more. You won't believe our world is full of so many bizarre and wonderful places!"

"Part trip planner, part boredom buster, the latest installment of the New York Times best-selling almanac is perfect for curious kids who want to learn all about the world and everything that's in it. The Almanac 2022 features amazing animal stories, explorer profiles, and outrageous attractions that kids know and love, plus tons of info on exotic locales, fascinating cultures and an entire section on travel in the U.S. and abroad. Loaded with fascinating features about animals, science, nature, technology, and conservation, this book is the number one selling kids almanac on the planet. There's a whole chapter full of fun and games, including activities, jokes, and comics and the colorful compilation also includes an Almanac Challenge 2022 — which inspires kids to reduce their plastic waste."  

"Ever wonder how haunted houses got their spooky rep; where cheese originally came from; and when and where people decided hitting a tiny ball with a long stick (ahem, golf?) was their idea of fun? Prepare to be amazed by the surprising backstories behind the things you use or do every day! From familiar foods and common clothing items to bizarre beauty regimens and quirky products, this book covers all your burning questions: Who thought of that? Where did that come from? Why is that a thing?  This riveting little treasure is jam-packed with awesome facts, fun stories, and colorful visuals. Once you know all this cool stuff about the origins of everyday stuff, you can "wow" your friends and family."
