Each chapter is written about a specific Walt Disney World attraction, and includes a brief history of the attraction is given within the first half of every chapter, along with some fun facts.  The second half of each chapter is called “Today’s Takeaway” which suggests an assignment to complete, a family activity to do, or a recipe to make.  Magical Mouse Schoolhouse can be used by families with kids of all ages.  There are plenty of activities and lessons geared towards little ones – such as making your own fossils using play-doh or trying 3 different recipes to make bubbles.
