Miles to Go by Jamie Harper (Giveaway)
So declares Miles, preschooler and car enthusiast. He puts on his seatbelt. Check. He cranks the key. Check. Uh-oh, the horn is broken, but no time to fix it, because—”gotta go!”—Miles is off to school, zigging and zagging past sister’s trike and brother’s truck. The trip is adventurous indeed, with the neighborhood dog to greet, puddles to navigate, even roads to cross (with Mom close at hand, of course). Jamie Harper’s adorable, energetic illustrations and wonderfully childlike sensibility will appeal to every busy little kid who loves things that go.
Miles to Go is an easy to read book and a great addition to our kids’ library. It’s filled with neon-bright illustrations that really catch your eye and brings the story to life. My girls enjoyed reading about Miles’ adventure as he drove his little car to school. So much so that now they’re asking if they can take their cars to school, too. I have to admit that it is a pretty cool idea although I can just imagine myself having to chase them down the sidewalk.
Miles to Go is perfect for kids who are learning how to read. There are a lot of basic words along with a few more challenging ones. Kiana was able to get through it without much help from me and insisted on reading it over and over again. I think we have a winner here!
