Review: Travel Kits E-book

Travel Kits
A Simple Way to Bless Others

"ARE WE THERE YET?" Who hasn't heard this cry and wished that there was something you could do to make traveling more entertaining and educational for your bored kiddos? If you are like me, you always try to pack toys, books and snacks for a trip, but children seem to get tired of the same old things so fast during a long ride.

This fun E-book from The Old Schoolhouse is here to help! Filled with hundreds of ideas and lots of photos, too, you will not regret buying it. After my initial glance through it, I was already regreting not having purchased it before our Summer trip to the mountains.

Lest you think this is just a book to use for your own children, the sub-title "A Simple way to Bless Others" is very descriptive of the book's contents. This books had a lot of fun ideas for adults, older children, and even ways to bless college or military members who will be away for home for longer.

My favorite part of this book is it's photos. There are tons of color photos that are almost as valuable as the words themselves. Pictures of Travel kits put together, gift ideas, wrapping ideas, and fun things to add... they are so fun to look at! This book makes me wish I had a money tree so I could do this for EVERYONE I know. But, really, these ideas don't require a lot of money. You can spend as much as you want, and still put together fun things.

At $12.45, this is a bit more expensive then a lot of e-books, but when you consider the volume of information included, the price starts to look like a bargain. I probably would never have bought it myself, because I am a real cheapskate. I really don't buy much of anything. :D But after seeing it, and reading it (Which, by the way, is fun. It is not a boring book!) I can say it is totally worth your money.

I consider myself a pretty creative person, but there are hundreds of ideas in this book I never would have thought of. I will be using a lot of these ideas on our trip to the zoo this fall. We will have grandparents, children, aunts and uncles, and our own family going, and it is three hours one way. I am really looking forward to putting together some zoo animal-themed travel kits! With the ideas in this book, I am sure there will be more fun things then they will be able to get done in those three hours!

If you are a e-book fan, or you simply like great ideas, The Old Schoolhouse store's e-book section is chock-full of great homeschool books, curriculum supplements, parenting advice, and bible studies.
