Anyone who has ever been trapped in a hot car with bored kids is well aware that they need a sure-fire way of easing the resulting tensions.  MILES OF SMILES: 101 GREAT CAR GAMES & ACTIVITIES fills that need and, according to one enthusiastic user, "may be the ultimate solution for back seat squabbling."  It contains games and activities with travel-related themes.  97 games require just minds and mouths to play, and the other 4 need only simple props: a penny, a pencil, and some crayons.  Recommended for ages 4+.
