Reading...Roadtrips?: Day Trips for Book Lovers

Summer is the perfect time for excursions of all kinds, but what if you could use vacations and day trips--fun time--to support learning?

The folks over at Reading Rockets have put together some book and activity pairings to help you do just that!

For example, if someone in the family is into archaeology or dinosaurs, you might read Peter Dickinson's A Bone from a Dry Sea, Byron Barton's Bones, Bones, Dinosaur Bones, Jan Wahl's The Field Mouse and the Dinosaur Named Sue, or Charlotte Jones' Fingerprints and Talking Bones, and then take a trip to a sandy beach for a "fossil hunt."

Find a full page of activity suggestions here!
