Win-It Wednesday: LaRue Across America Prize Pack (2 Winners!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on April 20, 2011 · 763 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday, with 24-hour giveaways just for you!

larue across america

In LaRue Across America, Ike’s plan for a peaceful cruise with Mrs. LaRue are thwarted when their neighbor, Mrs. Hibbins, falls suddenly ill. Mrs. LaRue suggests that she and Ike care for her cats while Mrs. Hibbins is in the hospital, inviting them along on the cruise. But cats aren't allowed, and Mrs. LaRue decides to take them all on a week's vacation of road-tripping. Ike is beside himself and quickly takes up his pen to tell us why!

Join award-winner Mark Teague on this romping road trip across America. Readers can follow along on the maps of the U.S. that span the endpapers. Teague drives us to the story’s satisfying conclusion, and we are left with one profound question: Can cats and dogs really be friends?

I love the colorful and engaging illustrations in this book! The story is a fun read, although probably best suited to an older child who will understand the humor and be able to sit through the entire story. It was a bit too lengthy to be a bedtime story for my 3 and 4-year-olds, but my 6, 8, and 9-year-olds thoroughly enjoyed it.

Two lucky Deal Seeking Mom readers will each win a LaRue Across America Prize Pack that includes:

  • a copy of LaRue Across America
  • a LaRue Across America backpack
  • a $100 gas gift card to go on your own adventure

To enter, tell me where in America you'd like to visit!

I would love to go back to Yosemite! I used to live near there when I was a kid and havent been able to get back. Yes my husband and 3 small kids and a cat took a moving trip from Marion, OH to Pinyon Pines, CA. It was a long great trip even though we had a few extra stops to make with the kids and the cat!! But I love traveling!!
