TRAVEL TIME

This summer say thank you to the inventor of the wheel and set off on an adventure—even if it’s only to the neighborhood park.

WHEREVER YOU GO by Pat Zietlow Miller, illustrated by Eliza Wheeler, Little Brown and Co., 2015.




Wherever You Go

Where does the road go?   

Over, under
zoom and race
zig and zag
left and right

Choices are made, plans change.

Share this book with your toddlers and young listeners as you pack your bags for a family trip—and be sure the book goes with you.

Illustrator Eliza Wheeler  delights sharp little eyes following a dapper bunny guide on a bike. He leads through towns, villages, the bright lights of the cities, even along a quiet winter trail through a forest dotted with cozy cabins demonstrating that all vacation trips are not made in summer. A wise looking owl flits along to provide company, a tranquil touch.

When he crosses a bridge and roads converge, the amiable bunny makes new friends. Does the family in the van resemble yours? That monkey waving from the top of the luggage carrier reminds me of my little brother on our family vacations.  

A comforting thought for all travelers: the same road you travel away from home takes you home again. 

Pat Miller will be remembered for her award winning picture book, Sophie's Squash.
Wherever You Go will join Sophie's Squash in your children’s basket of  lovingly thumbed books.
If you visit her website, you'll find other books including another book about Sophie.

Follow your road to delightful discoveries.

Bring home happy memories.

Safe travels.

Always.
