I remember rides in the car when I was young, singing and looking out the window. We got a nickel for every white horse we saw. Drives were often through Iowa, to Chicago, and on to Indiana. We did make some money.
The game went on and worked well until we were older and driving through Wyoming, and saw a herd of buffalo. Years before, when the possibility was remote, my brother and I had been told we would get a dollar for a buffalo, so I believe the game ended with the herd, and yet, I still think of a nickel when I see a white horse.
Today children watch movies in the car, and parents, what do they do?
Do they interact with the environment, both inside and outside the car?
