    The Travel Game is a story about Tad who play the travel game with his Aunt Hattie where they spend their time imagining what it would be like to travel the world This fiction book would be great for introducing a social studies unit where we learn about different countries in grades K 3 I would use it in a reading classroom to teach comprehension as well as new vocabulary

    This is a wonderful tale that describes a very close Polish family with Aunts Uncles and Grandparents living together with the young boy's family; they work together eat together an help one another His aunt helps him settle down for an afternoon nap by playing the travel game where they go anywhere in the world using their imagination and a book with pictures from all over This time they go to Hong Kong and describe the things they do and see there some of them obviously untrue and just made up by his aunt It's a fun book to read aloud and the illustrations are great too
