Reviews for Ogintz's previous books:
From The New York Times:
Families of children who enjoy reading may find what they need in...guidebooks by Eileen Ogintz.... The tone of voice, so hard to get right, is on target.
Eileen Ogintz's travel-guide series Taking the Kids has a cure for backseat critics who complain about boring family vacations. . . . Parents can read aloud from one of the guides while mapping out travel routes, or let confident young readers study it on their own.
From USA Today:
Ogintz wants to tell kids that traveling with their parents can be fun.
