Have you ever taken a train trip? Now that we live in the Northeast, I have a feeling we're going to become expert at it. This past weekend we took our first train trip as a family, down to New York City (The Big Apple!) to see my sister Clare walk at her graduation from Sotheby's Institute of Art.
We let the boys pick out some books to bring along on the trip. Levi brought Chocolate Fever and Clementine. Benjamin brought Astronaut Academy: Re-Entry, Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Rift part one, and the first two Jedi Academy Books.
We also made sure to bring Kid Sheriff and the Terrible Toads (which you can see Jacob reading to Jubilee, above) so that the grandparents could read it. It just cracks me up, and I knew they would like it, too.

Over all, this vacation was not great for reading. It involved a lot of exciting first-time-in-the-city things, like riding the subway and scratching the surface of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
But I have to say, I think trains are great for reading.
