thereChances are, most children have heard the ubiquitous statement “You’ll get there.”  This book launches one’s imagination into examining where and what “there” is.  The text is told entirely through questions, lending to creativity as the reader draws his own conclusions about what may happen “there.”  The painted illustrations are whimsical, interesting, and prompt the imagination.  This book will encourage discussion, and will be an excellent launching point in a storytime or classroom setting.  

Picture book, recommended.  Rebecca Eller (Larchmont Public Library)
