Editorial Reviews

Amazon - T. Miller
"Magical Mouse Schoolhouse" provides plenty of fun activities for your kids to do (and gets them away from the TV!) What a godsend!

Each chapter is written about a specific Walt Disney World attraction. A brief history of the attraction is given within the first half of every chapter, including some fun facts - my favorite part of the book! The second half of each chapter is called "Today's Takeaway" which suggests an assignment to complete, a family activity to do, or a recipe to make!

I just finished reading Magical Mouse Schoolhouse by Jodi Whisenhunt but I'm not really finished with this book as this will always be a great resource.

We're all huge fans of Walt Disney World in our family and have visited many times. Even seasoned travellers can learn a lot in this book. It's chock full of travel tips, funny stories, Disney history and so much more.

We are a home learning family who frequents Walt Disney World often. The author keeps the book entertaining, concise and informative. This book is not only for families who homeschool. I can easily see it being utilized for families who want to keep the thought processes alive during vacation without it "feeling" like education. The activities provided with each segment are a great way to stretch the magic to cover the Disney Blues once you're home. I recommend this book for anyone who visits a
