Doodle Journeys by Dawn DeVries Sokol

Travel for kids often means sitting in a plane, train, or car with an iPad on their laps—head down, headphones on, watching a movie or playing a mind-numbing game. In Doodle Journeys, an interactive guidebook, Dawn creates prompts that inspire children to pick up their head and look outside the window. They are challenged to imagine where they are going, what they might see. They are also dared to envision worlds that don’t exist.

The book will offer suggestions of marking tools (showing a TSA-approved artist kit), ways to adhere photos, and tips for how to document with doodles. Young explorers will use prompts on pages overflowing with colorful, vibrant backgrounds to encourage them to note and document what’s around them. Throughout the book are travel-inspired doodles and quotes.
