    Tina – you should check out the Project Explorer website for your Amazing Race videos. They have a great, free program and although their Peru video isn’t done yet I bet it will be great. I use this website a lot and have never heard you guys mention it:

    I bet you’re talking about the Wings of Fire series by Tui Sutherland. My son LOVES that series and did the same thing,rereading them all when I bought him the most recent book. He loves the menagerie books too.
