Summertime and the travelin' is easy . . . at least till junior gets bored three miles into the trip. To the rescue: Publishers Klutz Press, Planet Dexter and Dorling Kindersley. Each takes a different tack to the same goal (parental sanity-saving and/or child entertainment), and parents might do well to pack the entire trio of offerings in the kid's suitcase. Peg Solitaire: 23 All-On-Your-Own Games, with a "main thinker" credit to Estela Fernandez, is deceptively simple. The games--"Star Solitaire," "The Jump," "Keep Your Eye on the Ball" and others--are clearly shown in excellent graphics and rated in difficulty from "no-brainer" to "brain surgery."

Jack Keely sits in a sunlit Silver Lake cafe, eating an organic beef burger while discussing snot, boogers and eye gunk. Spread before him is the children's "Grossology" science book series he illustrated. On one page, a man with a giant leaking faucet for a head drips near a factoid about noses. (Did you know they make a fresh batch of snot every 20 minutes?) On the diarrhea page, a singing toilet regales readers with this bon mot: the Kayap Amazonian tribe has 100 different words for diarrhea.

Architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff labels the Grand Central Terminal restoration a "disaster" because it will serve a public "that has no connection to the original purpose of the building" ("The Grand in Central Is Leaving the Station," April 6). He seems oblivious to the fact that the public for whom the terminal was designed no longer exists, having disappeared decades ago along with the Twentieth Century Limited, Pullman Sleepers and long-distance rail travel itself. And while Mr. Ouroussoff may well have "preferred the company of the worn-out commuters, the loiterers, the needy and the homeless," the restoration and maintenance of Grand Central Terminal for the sole use of such a constituency is not, in the real world, an economic possibility.

In CASE you grown-ups missed it, there came a point somewhere between the advent of Nickelodeon's awards-show slime and Eddie Murphy's transition to PG-rated movie star that goop and flatulence stopped being objectionable material and transformed into the stuff of family fare. This revolting development may be extremely depressing to you, but kids love it -- and, it turns out, so do the folks who run newfangled science museums.

Paul, 10, a bespectacled expert in many things gross, was boosted by his dad above an excited Saturday morning crowd of parents and kids so that he might be picked as an authority. But Sally Snot, clad in mismatched plaids with a ribbon of toilet paper trailing from her shoe, didn't choose Paul in her search for three young experts on those bodily functions that make kids smirk and parents cringe.
