A Learning Vacation for Kids: How Books Can Merge Travel & Education (Shh! They Won't Even Know!) by Marge Jesberger

Summer vacation can be full of learning experiences for your family. One great way is to merge learning with travel. Here are a few fun ways to trick your child into thinking they are on vacation, but it is really life's virtual classroom:

  • Read “Heidi” by Johanna Spyri then hike a mountain peak near you. Pack a picnic of fresh bread, cheese and goat milk to add to the experience.
  • Got littles? Read your favorite Dr. Seuss books and experience the hands-on Dr. Seuss Museum in Springfield, Mass. If you can't get there, read about the history of your own hometown, then walk around the city square and point out its heritage.

The possibilities are exciting, educational and endless.
