Mystery Reader Picks:

Are We There YetAre We There Yet? by Dan Santat

2nd and 3rd Grade 

How many times have you heard this question?  "Are we there yet?" If you are like me you probably cannot count that high.  Caldecott medalist, Dan Santat takes us on a colorful journey right from the inside cover of the book until we reach the final destination(grandmother's house).  Car ride boredom leads to great flights of fancy reminding us that a whole lot can happen when kids are left to rely on their imagination for entertainment.  Children will get a huge kick out of the humorous images and thought bubbles and the way in which the book must be rotated to be read.
