The first book my daughter "read". Great illustrations and simple writing convey the humor of Emma the bear's family vacation. Conveys the importance of time together rather than an action- packed trip. ( )

The third book about Emma doesn't warm me quite the way its predecessor, Emma's Pet, does but the bear cub is still charming. Emma finds the sightseeing that her parents plan on the family vacation exhausting and suggests they enjoy the rural setting instead. I'm not sure why the publisher chose to eliminate the picture of Emma on her stomach looking at a map from the board book (it could have been placed on the backcover instead of repeating a picure from the story) but is otherwise comparable to the original hardcover and therefore quite worthwhile for toddler hands.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525471081, Hardcover)

"A welcome return for the cuddly and lovable bear-heroine of Fix-it and Emma's Pet . . . Wondering what type of vacation to take? Choose Emma's!" said Publishers Weekly of the original hardcover picture book. And now it's available as a board book, perfect for kids who know what it is like to always have to do what adults want to do.

Everybody loves vacations, but not everybody loves the same things. When Emma's mom and dad make all the plans-a car drive, a bus ride, trips on boats and trains-sight-seeing is exhausting! So adorable Emma shows them how to have a really good time, with a lot less fuss.

Emma's idea of a good vacation is quite different from that of her parents.
