One of the things that I find most important to instill in our children is a love of books and reading. Thankfully I was blessed with 4 children who love to read and be read to and even though they will often choose to read on their own I still make sure that I encourage it as often as possible. While I love many children’s authors one of my very favorites is Mark Teague, you may remember a review that I did on a couple of his books a few months back, well he’s back again with another witty, fun, and adventurous book; LaRue Across America! Check out all of the details below and see what we thought about this book…make sure you check out the book trailer too!
“Ike’s plan for a peaceful cruise with Mrs. LaRue are thwarted when their neighbor, Mrs. Hibbins, falls suddenly ill. Mrs. LaRue suggests that she and Ike care for her cats while Mrs. Hibbins is in the hospital, inviting them along on the cruise. But cats aren't allowed, and Mrs. LaRue decides to take them all on a week's vacation of road-tripping. Ike is beside himself and quickly takes up his pen to tell us why!
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 I mentioned above Lil Diva and Lil Man love to be read to and this book has been a huge hit around our house! Not only does LaRue Across America feature a cute, sarcastic, witty dog named Ike as the main character it’s also beautifully written and illustrated. Lil Diva has carried LaRue Across America around since it arrived , she asks me to read it to her, she asks her sisters to read it to her, and she even sits down and “reads” the story to herself…it is the cutest thing ever!
