Lawn to Lawn by Dan Yaccarino

Yaccarino, Dan Lawn to Lawn. Alfred A. Knopf (Random), 2010. $17.99. PICTURE BOOK. When Pearl's parents pack up to move, they leave behind Pearl's lawn ornaments. Afraid of being carted off into the garbage truck, the four lawn ornaments set off to find Pearl. The book tells of their journey. Though I was unsure about this book at first, I did become engaged in these lawn ornaments' adventure. This book allows for discussions about personification and taking control of a person's own destiny. EL, MS –OPTIONAL. Brent Smith, Reading Teacher.
