From The Little Bookroom
The Children's Travel Journal
By Ann Banks, illustrations by Adrienne Hartman
Help your favorite little globetrotter create a masterpiece of memories. While on the road, this unique diary is a fun-filled work-in-progress. When completed, it becomes a treasured keepsake that vividly preserves memories of a special trip.
The lined pages may be used to record impressions and experiences; there are words scattered throughout to give children some idea of what to look for and write about. The blank pages are for additional writing or for drawing, or for making collages. (There's a pocket to keep mementos in.) Kids we know have collected postcards, maps, business cards, Do not Disturb signs in different languages, menus...the list is endless.
- Making Plans
- First Impressions
- Food & Restaurants
