The note to parents and teachers at the beginning tells us that the book offers 'a variety of simple, interactive games that will nurture literacy skills while entertaining.' In various traveler's guises, Chirp, a small yellow bird, stars in each activity, often accompanied by a friend, like spotted Tweet or monkey Momo.

There are jokes and puns; cartoon adventures (in space, the desert, the forest, the South Pole, and the ocean) with simple text; travel games (Look Out for Letters, Go Wild!, Laugh It Up, and Count Up the Fun); sing-a-longs, some with actions to perform; and easy activities (Silly Sculptures with pipe cleaners, Fantastic Finger Plays using magic markers, and Amazing Animal Charades); as well as the Memories by Mail suggestion.

The variety and open-ended nature of some activities will stimulate other ideas in young and old travelers. Travel with Chirp is a useful resource for anyone planning long family trips with little ones.
