Whether around the world or around the corner to Grandma’s house, travel can be both scary and exciting for kids. The protagonist in Lately Lily: The Adventures of a Travelling Girl by Micah Player has been everywhere on the globe, thanks to her parents’ glamorous jobs with a magazine, and she views it all as a grand adventure, full of unexpected discoveries and endless possibilities. If your own offspring are more of the “Are we there yet?” variety, keep them busy with the Lately Lily ABC Travel Flash Cards, which explore travel while also teaching the alphabet, or the Lately Lily: Sunny Yellow Suitcase, which is overflowing with stickers, doodle ideas, activity cards and more, to while away long hours on planes, trains and automobiles. Find them all at local bookstores. Boredom banished, guaranteed.
