I wish there was a database in which I would search podcast archives for certain topics.

Any suggestions? I am also looking for childrens books as well for both kiddos.

Here are two of our favs we have already read:

Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination

DD loves History Makers Bio: Walt Disney (this series of biographys is found at Barnes and Noble and are excellent!)

What do you and/or your kids like to read before a trip (besides watching all the movies and reading the disney story books.)

I really enjoyed Disney Wars. It wasn't specifically about just the theme parks, but the Disney Company as a whole. It was very interesting, though some may see it as critical of Disney.

My husband is reading Walt and the Promise of Progress City by Sam Gennaway. He is really enjoying it, he says it is about Walt's true vision for Epcot and just about how Walt built the theme parks in general...the research involved etc...
