The Best Part of the Trip
About the Book
Almost everyone looks forward to summer vacation. Sometimes it’s because we’re taking a trip. But other times, it’s because someone is coming to see us!
Author and illustrator Jackie Mattes shares memories of her childhood in The Best Part of the Trip. Each summer, she and her older sister eagerly awaited her father’s arrival at their summer home. And finally, Jackie and her sister were old enough to wait for him alone.
The Best Part of the Trip shows the love of a family for being together. And the fun they have. You’ll also see how being blind doesn’t stop their father from living a full, active life.
