PreS-K—In this Indian import, Sameer's mother tries to guess where her son is going on vacation. He tells her: "It is a special place," where he can stay up late, play all day, take his stuffed animal friends, have people cook his favorite things, and hear a new story every day. His mother makes several guesses and finally gives up, so Sameer tells her, "Grandma and Grandpa's house, of course!" Bold, brightly colored illustrations fill the oversize spreads, depicting each suggestion Sameer's mother makes: a playground, a hotel, a zoo, a summer camp. Children will delight in guessing along with her, and all will be satisfied with the final answer. Ideal for storytimes and for one-on-one sharing (especially with grandparents).—Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA
