9780142300138: Are We There Yet, Daddy? (Picture Puffins)

On a hundred-mile car trip to Grandma's house, a father and son travel from the city to the country. Every ten miles the son asks, "Are we there yet, Daddy?" and is told to consult the map. A gatefold map, as well as a map on each page, will allow young readers to follow the father and son's route and to count down the miles left in their journey.

About the Author:

S. D. Schindler lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-This unique picture book combines map and counting skills with a bouncy refrain that invites kids to join in. A little boy and his dad set out in their yellow Volkswagon Beetle to visit grandma. Like all children, the boy repeatedly asks, "Are we there yet, Daddy?" Dad says, "Just look at the map, Son. Then you will know." A large gatefold map precedes the title page, but a smaller version is reproduced on each two-page spread. Landmarks along the route help the child see that they have 90 miles to go, 80 miles to go, etc. The map is easy to follow. Children will enjoy finding locations in the illustrations (a tunnel, a bridge, an ice cream store) and matching them with places on the map. The flat, pastel pictures add enlivening details to the repetitive text. The youngster has flaming red hair that refuses to lie flat. Father and son start the trip cheerfully singing. As time passes, dad's expression becomes more severe, especially when his son drops ice cream on the car seat or announces, "this is getting boring." Although he finally announces, "I'm glad the trip is over-it seemed to take a year," listeners will look forward to many return visits.
