Spring Break passed and now Summer is on it’s way bringing thoughts of traveling. I love to just get in the car and drive long distances. I think I’m the only one in the family that likes it, most of my family would just prefer picking a destination and getting on an air plane. Well Ike, Mrs. LaRue’s dog would prefer to take his vacation on a boat in LaRue Across America: Postcards From the Vacation (LaRue Books) . Ike and Mrs LaRue had made plans to take a cruise when her neighbor Mrs Hibbins falls ill. Then Mrs. LaRue offers to take care of Mrs. Hibbins cats while she’s in the hospital but the captain of the boat will not allow cats on his boat so, they decide to take their vacation across the U.S. by car. It’s a ROAD TRIP. Ike is devestated and quickly starts writing letters and sending them at every stop begging Mrs. Hibbins to rectify the situation.
Join award-winner Mark Teague on this romping road trip across America. Readers can follow along on the maps of the U.S. that span the endpapers. Teague drives us to the story’s satisfying conclusion, and we are left with one profound question: Can cats and dogs really be friends?
As soon as we got this book Zoe got her dad to read it, now he looked at the pages and said this may take us a few days to read, but as he got to reading it he realized that it was an easy read for the kids to sit through. Both of them enjoyed it and I even heard daddy laughing as he read it. LaRue Across America is great for kids and adults alike.
