Are we there yet by Santat, Dan
Cute audio story of a boy in a car with his parents and they are heading to the grandmother's house.
It is over 1000 miles away and the boy doesn't have much patience, gets bored and his butt hurts. As an adult we've taken rides that are over 1100 miles long so I can fully understand where this story is going.
Love the trip and you should treasure it.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

This is a book is about a boy that is with his parents on his way to visit his Grandmother for her birthday party and it is a long road trip. A road trip where things can become boring and time slow down and this family's car ride turns into an interesting visit to the past and the future. This book did well to incorporate the elements of a tall tale. This was shown through how a simple car ride to grandma's turned into and adventure through time into the past and the future. Although this book's story was more told through the illustrations that are a part of it instead of through the use of words to create the imagery. ( )

A boy on a car trip to his grandmother's birthday is bored. Time seems to pass so slow that it actually starts moving backward. The boy has to develop more appreciation for the present to get them back to the right era in time for the birthday party.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316199990, Hardcover)

Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat takes readers on the road trip of a lifetime!
"Are we there yet?" Every parent has heard this classic kid question on a long car ride--and after reading this astonishingly inventive new book (that even turns upside down for several pages!), you'll never look at being bored the same way again.

Let's face it: everyone knows that car rides can be boring. And when things get boring, time slows down. In this book, a boy feels time slowing down so much that it starts going backward--into the time of pirates! Of princesses! Of dinosaurs! The boy was just trying to get to his grandmother's birthday party, but instead he's traveling through Ancient Egypt and rubbing shoulders with Ben Franklin. When time flies, who knows where--or when--he'll end up.
