What if timid Baby Lincoln broke free of her bossy sister and set off on an unexpected journey? Kate DiCamillo presents a touching new adventure set in Mercy Watson's world. Baby Lincoln's older sister, Eugenia, is very fond of telling Baby what to do, and Baby usually responds by saying "Yes, Sister." But one day Baby has had enough. She decides to depart on a Necessary Journey, even though she has never gone anywhere without Eugenia telling her what to take and where to go. And in fact Baby doesn't knowwhere she is headed -- only that she was entirely happy in the previous night's dream, sitting aboard a train with a view of shooting stars. Who might Baby meet as she strikes out on her own, and what could she discover about herself? Will her impulsive adventure take her away from Eugenia for good?… (more)

So good to see a story for children that includes interesting older characters as protagonists! ( )

I've started reading chapter books to my children at night. They get to chose (from what we have) and this is where we begin. I don't think I could have chosen a better first book.

[b:Where Are You Going, Baby Lincoln?|28588031|Where Are You Going, Baby Lincoln?|Kate DiCamillo|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1458679553l/28588031._SX50_.jpg|48755251] tells the story of Baby Lincoln striking out on her own, taking a Necessary Journey by train to... well, it doesn't really matter in the end, does it? (Fluxom. They're going to Fluxom.)

I've always loved the world [a:Kate DiCamillo|13663|Kate DiCamillo|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1402414985p2/13663.jpg] has created and this is no exception. It's a fun book and a quick read and has a few nuggets of goodness hidden in there. DiCamillo certainly does have a way with words:


Baby leaned back in her seat. The train seemed to be going faster, and from somewhere far away Baby heard music. It was a song that she knew but couldn't quite place.

"Do you hear music?" she said to Sheila.

"I hear something," said Sheila.

She closed her eyes. She was quiet.

"I've got a physics professor who says that the stars sing to each other all the time. Isn't that cool? Maybe the music we're hearing is the stars singing.”


That right there sounds like the seed of a story worth reading/writing. ( )

This was such a wonderful story. Lucelle 'Baby' Lincoln goes on a necessary journey thanks to a dream. She meets many wonderful characters and friends along the way as she is stepping out from under the strong personality of her sister Eugenia. She realizes she can be her own person and have her own thoughts.This story is amazing and wonderful. Kate is a sublime storyteller and all this is on display in this wonderful story. DiCamillo manages to show the spiritual side of travelling alone. ( )

[b:Where Are You Going, Baby Lincoln?|28588031|Where Are You Going, Baby Lincoln? (Tales from Deckawoo Drive, #3)|Kate DiCamillo|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1458679553s/28588031.jpg|48755251], the third in the Tales from Deckawoo Drive series by Kate DiCamillo, features Baby Lincoln, and her "Necessary Journey."

Baby Lincoln is ready for a change, but she is not quite sure what type of change, or how to go about causing the change. She is inspired by a dream and the sound of a train whistle to go on a journey. On the journey, she meets and helps several people who help her in turn.

The series is adorable, from the engaging artwork, to the wonderful storytelling, and the standout characters. DiCamillo has a talent for using a few words to paint a thorough picture each character who lives on Deckawoo Drive. The books are written to be enjoyable whether you have read the previous books in the series or not. Also, Mercy Watson makes a small appearance in this edition.

Highy Recommended, for all ages. It is a great book, and would be wonderful book to read to young readers, as well as a excellent chapter book for readers.
