The Not-So Faraway Adventure

Illustrated by Irene Luxbacher
Kids Can Press, 2016
ISBN 978-1-77138-097-3

It’s Poppa’s birthday and Theo has planned a special trip to the beach to celebrate. They plot out their course on a map they’ve drawn and then take the streetcar to the local beach, where they stroll in the sand, hunt for stones and slurp gazpacho at the beachside restaurant. It’s a perfect day, and Theo is so happy to have given Poppa just the right gift.

I like this book because it was inspired by the relationship between my daughter and her grandfather.
