I WENT TO THE PARTY IN KALAMAZOO

Author: Ed Shankman

Illustrator: Dave Frank

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Two Kids Productions, LLC,

Material: hard cover

Summary: What are you doing ten years from today? Well, we are all going to a party, where we'll meet amazing people (and animals), and anything can happen ... as long as it's fun. This rhyming picture book invites kids to participate in celebrating life.

Type of Reading: bedtime story, anytime reading, family reading, playtime reading, read aloud book, learning to read

Recommended Age: read together: 4 to 8; read yourself: 6 to 9

Interest Level: 4 to 7

Reading Level: 2.8

Age of Child: Started reading with 6-year-old child.

Young Reader Reaction: We had several immediate requests to re-read this book. Then our child sat with the book independently, just to enjoy the illustrations. The collage of characters on the jacket and the bold colors inside captivated her.

Adult Reader Reaction: This was fun to read ... even a couple times in a row. It will remind you of reading a Dr. Seuss book, but it is unique, too. We like how it blends in fun, creative activities with real places that are also great (family) destinations.

Pros: Colorful illustrations and a collection of favorite activities make this road trip a party of the first order.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Borrow, at least. This is a book that a young child will LOVE and will likely want to return to when s/he is a little older and reading more on their own (second grade).
