When I recommend books to kids or grown-ups, I can almost always get them interested if I add “Oh, and after you read this book, you could go on a field trip to the museum/zoo/baseball stadium/library … or just take a little road trip!” Spring 2013 has been a very good year for children’s books that spark the imagination and make kids (and grownups) want to do a little more exploring.
Books like these can be the start of amazing adventures. Enjoy!
