Product Description

Review

'This splendid sing-along book is wonderful for pre-school and Early Years children for listening, dancing, then singing and acting out the story.' --Books for Keeps

About the Author

Jemima Lumley is an author and designer. She has previously worked as a designer at Frances Lincoln and Orchard Books, and now lives in Bristol, England with her husband and two children. The Journey Home from Grandpa's is her first title for Barefoot Books. Sophie Fatus is a full-time illustrator and sculptress whose bright and distinctive illustrations have brought her numerous commissions and international critical acclaim. 'I take much inspiration from animals that I love, and I want to give homage to their very strong dignity through my work. I'd like my work to be a peaceful message of solidarity and support, that could help children remember to love and respect each other.' Sophie was born and educated in France and now lives in Florence, Italy. For more than twenty years Fred Penner has been entertaining children and adults alike through a variety of media. A native of Manitoba, Canada, Penner has worn many hats from folk-rock singer, television host and home video star to children's book author, UNICEF Canada spokesman, husband and father of four! Penner's deep respect for children has been a driving force behind his work and inspires his energetic live performances. With record sales topping the one million mark, and eleven albums and home videos to his credit, it is no wonder that an entire generation of children know many of his lyrics by heart. In fact, Penner's 'The Cat Came Back' and 'You Can Do It (If You Try)' are such favourites with children that they have become classics, taught and performed in music classes all over the world. Lucky for us, Penner shows no signs of slowing down. He is continuously working to create new songs, hoping to share his music with many generations of children to come.

Format: Paperback
This quirkily illustrated picture book teaches young children their colours and features all kinds of vehicles, as seen on the 'journey home from Grandpa's'. The tune on the CD is the same as 'the big ship sails on the ally ally-o' which fits the text very well. My three year old loves it, and making up our own version based on the cars, vans and trucks we see has become a regular habit on the journey home from Grandpa's, friends, shopping, anywhere in fact!

Any child who likes vehicles will love this book and song. The book follows the journey the family are making in the car. Many vehicles are featured and there are lots of details in the pictures. Also good for learning colours.

This product is normarly a great book as the pre school i've worked in has it, that's why i thought it would work for the children i care for. When it arrived it didn't have the c.d which really is the book you need that c.d to make it fun and educational, but we make it work.

My class thoroughly enjoyed listening to and singing along to the repetitive refrains within this story. It was a good introduction to our term topic of travel. Would reccommend.

This is another great book. The pictures are bright and cheerful and the text is easy to follow. There is the added bonus of the cd which helps you with the tune and helps the children to use the book and follow the story themselves. The cd can also be used on the computer and the story comes alive for the children. This story introduces children to colour, transport and how to start to follow a story by themselves. This is a great product and one I would recommend.

We discovered the barefoot books accidentally while surfing youtube. Found a tractor song, liked it and found more songs by the same company. I ordered a selection of the books with the CDs and they have been real hits with my twin grandsons - aged 3. Lovely pictures, lots to look at - and will probably last quite a while in terms of holding their interest!The songs stick in your head - I wake in the night humming them!!

Bought this after reading all the other great reviews and couldn't have made a better choice. My vehicle-adoring almost 3-year old immediately took to the colourful and querky pictures and learnt the song in no time! He surprised my hubby and me the other day by sitting down with the book on his lap, turning the pages and singing along to the book as if he could read the words!
