Are we there yet, Daddy? By Virginia Walters
This question becomes the bane of all parents driving down the freeway. Often this question is asked minutes after leaving the driveway and repeated for the many hundreds of miles that must be covered. The father in this book gives his son a map which he can read and mark as they travel to Grandma’s house. Every child can relate to the tedium of a long drive and each parent knows the reality of this situation all too well. It’s also a fun way to introduce maps and math to children.
