Part travelogue, part I SPY, part Where’s…Charlie!
Find a pirate museum. Look for Key West. Then find Miami where the beach is the best!

• book reports
• trips
• beyond-the-backyard exploration
• firing up kids to discover all the real,not just the virtual, world has to offer.

Just ask Charlie—he’ll know!
