Take Me On Vacation is essential packing for any creative child's suitcase – whether they're going to a relative's house for the weekend or taking a trip to a far-flung corner of the world.
This innovative, interactive book is divided into five 'adventure' chapters. Children start a new adventure at the beginning of each holiday. Within each chapter, there's space for them to plan and research their trip, document the journey and record memorable days out. As they complete lists, draw pictures and answer questions they'll discover more about the places they're visiting – and learn a little more about themselves, too. Quirky, easy to navigate and brimming with interesting holiday facts, this book is a must-have for any trip – don't leave home without it!
