    Marco Polo was the most famous traveler of his time (late 1200s) and is still well-known for his many voyages. He wrote this account of his travels, and it gives a glimpse of the different societies he encountered (religions, customs, way of life, etc.), as well as treasures like the spices and silks of the East, exotic vegetation, and wild beasts. There are stories about a holy shoemaker, a wicked caliph and three kings, and much more. This Penguin Classics edition was translated with an introduction by Ronald E. Latham. 384 pgs, pb.

    This combined volume of all four Time Traveler books focuses on everyday life in various periods in history. Like the Book of World History it contains interesting text and captivating illustrations (in typical Usborne style!).

    So, how is it different? The World History book goes through history, looking at different civilizations during each period. The Omnibus focuses in on specific time periods in history and examines in detail the lives of fictional characters who could have lived during that time. My (then) 12 year old daughter recommended reading through the World History volume first, then the Time Traveler's Omnibus to "zoom in" on certain historical periods. She says this book will "give you a better understanding and appreciation of how it was to live during that time - it's the next best thing to being there."

    Looking for ideas for those long (or short) car trips? This fantastic pack of cards from Usborne is full of fun things to do while traveling. Just choose one of the 50 colorful cards and follow the instructions on the back. The majority of the games are for 2 or more people and all you'll ever need for the activities is paper and writing utensils (sometimes not even that). Examples of games include "Find the Words" where players think of one word and then have a set amount of time to create as many words as they can using the letters from the original word; "Word Bugs" which is like Hangman, but with a bug instead of a body; "Snapping Mouth" which is like an origami project; "First to 50" where players choose one thing to count and try to be the first to find 50; and many many more. Some standard games like Rock Paper Scissors and Single Word Stories (where players take turns saying one word in a story) are also included. Cards are 3.75" x 6." ~ Rachel

    Tabitha is the daughter of a shepherd who is taking his family to his birthplace. Tabitha is a curious and courageous young girl who often finds it difficult to be docile and "know her place" as girls were expected to do in Biblical times. As Tabitha travels with her family, she watches as the Romans take her father prisoner, spends time with Zechariah and Elizabeth, helps Mary and Joseph just before Christ's birth, and ends her travels at the stable in Bethlehem. Each chapter begins with instructions to light a specific candle(s) on your Advent Wreath, followed by the text of the story. The end of each chapter contains a devotional with a Bible verse and discussion questions that pertain to themes or events from the chapter. A total of twenty-eight devotions are included. By Arnold Ytreeide. 159 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    Can you fit all of the animal pairs inside the ark? This magnetic puzzle may be cute, but it's harder than it looks. To play a puzzle, set up the magnetic board with the animal piece(s) shown in the setup chart. The goal is to fit the rest of the animals on the board; the catch is that each animal pair must have at least one side touching each other, and you can't turn any pieces! This is a great game for road trips or other times when children need to keep themselves occupied for a while. It's contained in a spiral-bound hardcover that snaps closed to keep everything together. –Chad

    Waldo sure does get around, doesn't he? This was the first Waldo book I have ever looked at. He is so hard to find!! The book is small format, so you may want to add a magnifying glass if you are giving this as a gift. Seriously! This collection has all 7 Waldo books in one volume. At the beginning and end of each adventure is a flap with a checklist of all you have to find: hundreds more things, actually! Not just Waldo! I was totally lost, but I can see where a kid would find this a fun challenge. Maybe my eyes are too old to find poor Waldo. The compact version makes a great book to keep in the car or a backpack, even a purse. It has a sturdy soft cover with an elastic place holder. Over 170 pages include enough to keep a kid looking for what's-his-name for a long time! 6" x 7.5" ~ Sara
