What’s better than a summer filled with road trips and long, lazy afternoons? A summer that comes fully stocked with the supplies you’ll need to keep your kids from uttering the words, “I’m bored.” Get ahead of the game with a few cool, new activity books. From art-by-sticker to beautifully designed sketchbooks, we found something for every kid. Flip through the slideshow below to see them all.

Draw & Discover

A set of three adorable activity books by celebrated children’s author Yasmeen Ismail, the Draw and Discover series includes Inside, Outside, Upside Down, Push, Pull, Empty, Full and Happy, Sad, Feeling Glad. Kids will join Cat, Dog, Donkey, Bear, Duck and Rabbit as the animals discover feelings, emotions, differences, and opposites: outside and inside, up and down, left to right and back again. Then, using the prompts on each page, little artists can add their own drawings and illustrations to add to the fun!

Ages: 4 - 7.

Available at barnesandnoble.com, $9.99.
