Read Are We There Yet? Online Free - Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat takes readers on the road trip of a lifetime!
"Are we there yet?" Every parent has heard this classic kid question on a long car ride--and after reading this astonishingly inventive new book (that even turns upside down for several pages!), you'll never look at being bored the same way again.
Let's face it: everyone knows that car rides can be boring. And when things get boring, time slows down. In this book, a boy feels time slowing down so much that it starts going backward--into the time of pirates! Of princesses! Of dinosaurs! The boy was just trying to get to his grandmother's birthday party, but instead he's traveling through Ancient Egypt and rubbing shoulders with Ben Franklin. When time flies, who knows where--or when--he'll end up.

Are We There Yet? is also very innovative:
1) It is literally "full of twists and turns" as the story requires the reader to turn the book upside down.
2) One of the minor characters, a robot, speaks in QR codes, and if you scan them, you can see the "tra...

When taking a road trip, especially one to Grandma's house, the drive can seem endless. To the point where time doesn't just stand still... it moves backwards.

Well, LBYR cemented its place in my heart and earned the first two 2016 favorites designation. And, so did Dan Santat. I have been a fan of his work forever but Beekle and Are We There Yet are his best work ever. Are We There Yet? captured the universality of the boring family car ride and the ri...
