Does your child ever get bored? This book will teach them how to use their imaginations to pass the time.

Through humor, this empowering picture book will encourage your children to think positively, use imagination in everyday life, and be happy and confident. They will remain positive, creative, responsible, and supportive of each other.

They will read this book again and again!

Inspiring creativity, thinking outside the box, and taking initiative, this series is a must-have for parents and teachers.

How will they pass the time on the long trip to their grandparents?

Read the book to find out!

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review. 

This is a short story about a long car ride to visit the grandparents and what a couple of kids do to pass the time. They have a fabulous imagination and turn the car ride in a space adventure where they encounter some aliens on the way. The imagine where the aliens are going, and consider whether they will like earth and even question whether they have an alien dog. It's probably a better way to occupy a kid's time on a long car trip than giving them a screen to play with (and I'm not hating on using screens because my family did that when the kids were little because it works). 

The illustrations were colorful and fun, especially once they started talking about the aliens they encountered. I think this is a book I could read a few times before I got tired of it, especially if I noticed it helping my kids use their imaginations more to occupy themselves considering our screen habit. Overall I give this book 4.12 out of 5 stars. - Katie
