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 Travelers 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 - its 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 youll 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
