Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat takes readers on the road trip of a lifetime!
“Are we there yet?” Every parent has heard this classic kid question on a long car ride–and after reading this astonishingly inventive new book (that even turns upside down for several pages!), you’ll never look at being bored the same way again.
Let’s face it: everyone knows that car rides can be boring. And when things get boring, time slows down. In this book, a boy feels time slowing down so much that it starts going backward–into the time of pirates! Of princesses! Of dinosaurs! The boy was just trying to get to his grandmother’s birthday party, but instead he’s traveling through Ancient Egypt and rubbing shoulders with Ben Franklin. When time flies, who knows where–or when–he’ll end up.
Okay….this is such a great children’s book. I listened to it in audio book that I checked out from the library online. I don’t know why I was expecting it to be longer than 4 minutes long but other than that I think it would be a great “night night” book to read to your child. The book is full of colors and brings you to a different time on the way to grandma’s house. I give this childs book a 3 out of 5 stars.
