Why hello, summer.
Sunny days are here, and it's time to unwind, unplug and dream a little. Have you ever secretly fantasized about dropping everything and moving abroad? This month, learn how five families did just that, and hear the wisdom they have for others curious about taking a "gap year." And "free-range" mom Lenore Skenazy reminds us how free time allows kids to unfurl their imaginations and pursue whatever their hearts desire.
As always, we've got useful tips like our favorite swim gear for little tykes, what kids are really selling this summer (hint: It's not just lemonade anymore!) and a roundup of YA audiobooks the whole family will enjoy on those long summer roadtrips.
