Road Tripping

by Rick Walton Loralee Leavitt

Imagine driving down an empty road in the middle of nowhere, your spouse asleep in the passenger seat, kids fighting in the back, two more hours to the next hotel you hope has a vacancy, you're struggling to keep your eyes open, and you can't remember the last time you ate. Just thinking about this would make even the most resilient parents second-guess the idea of taking their children on a long road trip. Is it really worth the trouble? The truth is, any family can take a long road trip. All it takes is preparation, time behind the wheel, and determination to keep your family's spirits up, no matter the situation. In Road Tripping: A Parent's Guide to Planning and Surviving the Annual Car Trip, authors Loralee Leavitt and Rick Walton take you step-by-step through what you need to know to survive any situation as a family on the road. Not only do they help you decide what to pack, but they also provide resources on where to go, what to do, and how to get the best discounts. They even give tips for single parents who want to spend some quality time with their children, but aren't sure if they could do it alone. So don't let that open road scare you. Take time to prepare, pack up the kids, and start out on your next, fun-filled adventure.

So Many Bunnies

by Rick Walton

From the Publisher: Follow Mother Rabbit through her rambling house and garden as she tucks in a whole alphabet of baby bunnies, from Abel through Zed. This cozy bedtime book has the comforting familiarity of a lullaby combined with the fundamental concepts toddlers adore. From Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum: So Many Bunnies does double-duty. It gets kids hip-hopping into Easter as well as into National Poetry Month, celebrated each April. Rick Dalton's ingenious rhyming text weaves alphabet and counting lessons into a sweet tale of Old Mother Rabbit who lived in a shoe. Unlike her human counterpart, Mother Rabbit knows just what to do and where to tuck her twenty-six sleepy darlings, from "1 was named Abel./He slept on the table" to "26 was named Zed./He slept on the shed." Paige Miglio's soft-toned watercolors are a lovely complement to this lullaby.
