It's All About Me
(Klutz $14.95 Score:) Our testers loved filling in the answers to this personality quiz. This book allows kids to share their thoughts and write down feelings about themselves, their parents and friends. 8 & up. If you have a detail-oriented child, Paper Stained Glass ($19.95 4) will make the time fly. It is really an advanced form of color-by-number. Working on sheer vellum with felt markers, this craft takes up a lot of “are we there yet?” restlessness. For fun once you arrive, bring along The Foam Airplane Book ($14.95 4). 8 & up. (800) 737-4123.

Once we got the hang of waiting for beeps to record our answers, it was fun to play. 6 & up. (877) 272-6486.
