The Journey Home from Grandpa's
TITLE: The Journey Home from Grandpa's
AUTHOR: Jemima Lumley
ILLUSTRATOR: Sophie Fatus
PUBLISHER: Barefoot Books
A child is on the trip home from Grandpa's. This book describes the things that the child sees on the trip home from Grandpa's. It uses repetition and rhyming words. Each page focuses on a different colored method of transportation, including a white helicopter and orange truck.
I liked the fun, bright illustrations in this book that went along with the rhythmic text. This book is appropriate for a read aloud in the classroom as well as at home. I could see it being a favorite of young children because of its repetitive nature. I would recommend it for kindergarten or younger aged children.
