Last week my family traveled to Minnesota to watch my husband graduate after over 6 years of hard work on his PhD. After years of watching him fly off to school, we couldn’t wait to all travel together to celebrate his accomplishment. BUT, I admit I was a little nervous. We had never taken the kids (6 & 4) on a plane before and I knew that once we got into Minnesota that we would have fun but there would be some moments that the kids would need to sit quietly and be on their best behavior. Judging from a recent church service when my 4-year-old decided to pew hop without any warning in the middle of the hymn, I knew that I needed to come prepared. When Little Bee Books requested that I choose a couple books to review from their recent catalog, I chose the Big Blue Activity Book, Big Pink Activity Book, plus the Build a Book for Boys. And, wow, was I glad that I did so. These books have proven to be such an incredible hit with my kids that I’m thinking of stocking up for future birthday gifts! I can confidently recommend too that you should consider these books as a way to entertain kids while traveling or for any activity that you need quietly occupied kids for a longer period of time.
I accepted copies of these books to review and this post contains affiliate links. All opinions remain my own. [Read more…]
