It's Only Ink!
The Journey Home from Grandpa's

Going to Grandpa's is fun, but coming home can be just as fun too. When one little boy and girl head home, they experience the ride of a lifetime. They travel over hilly, bumpy roads, watch a white helicopter whiz up and down and wave to the man on a large blue barge.
The rhyming storyline with repetitive chorus makes for a fun good book for younger children. The illustrations, by Sophie Fatust, are colorful, charming, and eye-catching. This book would work well for preschool and kindergarten children learning their colors.
"The Journey Home from Grandpa's" would make a splendid addition to any library and grade school classroom setting. Children and parents will come back to this book again and again. Sure to be a family favorite.
This book comes highly recommended by this reviewer and her children.
