Travel Time

Ah, Summer at last.  No more early bedtimes, no more schedules, adventure awaits!  I love summer adventures...road trips through the Midwest, beach trips, hot sticky days in cities where you're happy to collapse in a hotel lobby after sight-seeing, and, of course, camping trips.  New and old, for all ages, here are a few books that get me and my family in the mood for some adventures near and far.
