Since I am working on kid’s books that are geography focused, I am researching places I am visiting during my travel year. Watch for maps with factoids about place, along with something silly that represents Lil’ Girl’s impressions of place. For example, Mr. Potato Head snowboarding in the land of spuds, soon to be followed by the yard sale that happens when he crashes and his body parts are jolted off him.

I had a great time in Idaho. Schweitzer mountain was quaint, people were friendly, food & drink were yummy, and the view of Lake Ponderay was breathtaking.
