Vacation: We're Going to the Ocean



Vacation: We're Going to the Ocean

A young boy is excited for his family vacation. He isn't excited about the car trip to get there (his siblings are not the ideal seatmates). His story is told through brief poems and adorable black and white illustrations. His insight into such things as appropriate beach-wear and what makes an ideal pet are laugh-out-loud funny at times. I especially loved the illustrations that accompanied this entertaining story.
