La Rue Across America: Postcards from the Vacation by Mark Teague

Teague, Mark La Rue Across America Postcards from the Vacation 40 pgs. Blue Sky Press, 2011. $16.99. Gertrude LaRue and her dog Ike are back for another fun adventure. LaRue offers to take care of her neighbors cats and decides to take them on a road trip with Ike. They travel all over from the Grand Canyon to the top of the Empire State Building. Poor Ike writes letters along the way, trying to get the cats sent home so that he can have a peaceful trip. This is written in a letter format and would be great for teaching the 6+1 traits of writing, in particular, word choice and voice. EL(K-3). EL. ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: AM.
