My kids have always been book lovers. Since the day they discovered that books had pictures, they were booked! If you are planning an upcoming trip, I highly recommend bringing some books along for you to read to them, or that they can read on their own! If you want, you could even look into getting some audiobooks for some added fun if they aren’t old enough to read yet!
