The House Takes a Vacation

The House Takes a Vacation
By Jacqueline Davies

Stars: 4.5 out of 5

I can’t help but gush over this book.  I love, love, love a good pun and this one’s full of them.  The roof thinks it might have shingles and the chimney is worried it’s got the flue!  Awesome.  Unfortunately, a lot of the puns seemed to go over the Junior Kindergartners’ heads, so I’d suggest it for an older crowd.  But it definitely will amuse adults!  The sharper kids noticed that the house actually follows its humans on vacation – see if your kids can spot the family!  I tend to judge not just on my own reaction but on the kids’ reactions – the JKers wanted to hear this one again and again.  (Perhaps relatedly, it’s easy to do voices with this one – and I have a hard time with voices.)
