Are We There Yet? by Dan Santat
A family is invited to their grandmother’s birthday party which is out of town. It’s a long trip: like 1000 miles long. To the little boy in the backseat, minutes seems like hours, hours seem like days…it feels like a million years. But wait! He’s actually gone through a million years…back in time. Not to worry. The family car speeds back through time again. But now they are heading into the future. Oh no! How will they get to grandma’s party? The pictures are in beautiful deep sunset colors. And there’s a neat twist to how the book is set up. It’ll make your kids feel that a plain old road trip through the present might not be so bad.
