This is Book #1 in the first series about a homeschooling family. The Wrights travel the USA in an RV. Each month brings them to a new state with a new educational theme to explore and play with. They prove that learning can happen all the time, anywhere, and that being with family is fun!

This book allow you to explore an Arizona desert cave with the Wrights as they begin their trip.
Ethan and I really enjoyed this great new book. It reminds me of the the Magic Tree House books minus the magic! I love a book that is fun to read as well as educational! We really learned a lot about the caves in Arizona from reading this book! We also love the fact that there was a glossary in the back, so we were able to find the meanings of a few unfamiliar words. Throughout the book you will experience adventure, as well as humor! I also LOVE how the author includes positive family values which is hard to find in today's children's literature. We highly recommend that you check out this great new series!
Ethan and I both look forward to reading more books in this series!! Fifty books are planned, one for each state :)
