Books with Road Trips

October 19th, 2009 by

There are plenty of movies and TV shows involving road trips, and even a famous song dedicated to driving across America (you’ve probably heard of it — “Route 66”). But let’s not forget the books! This is Kidsmomo, after all… So, check out these books containing road trips (in no particular order):

  1. Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech (Karen’s pick)
  2. Becoming Naomi León by Pam Muñoz Ryan (Nancy’s pick)
  3. Hit the Road by by Caroline B. Cooney
  4. The Vacation by Polly Horvath
  5. Dizzy by Cathy Cassidy
  6. Amelia’s Are-We-There-Yet Longest Ever Car Trip by Marissa Moss
  7. The Watsons Go to Birmingham — 1963 by Christopher Paul Curtis
  8. The Melanie Martin books by Carol Weston

If you’ve read any of these, send in your book review and we may read it our podcast. Or send in a review of your favorite book that includes a road trip!

UPDATE 10/26/09: We revealed the answer to our road trip Mystery Book Theater in the “Hit the Road, Jack” Podcast, so take a listen if you want to know the answer — or if you just want to hear Nancy’s most embarrassing road trip memory!
