From Here to There
Here and There are so similar they’re practically twins. But they could never play together because Here is always here and There is always there, so they become pen pals and write to each other all the time. One day, There gets an idea that could change the distance between them forever.
From Here to There is a story of friendship that encourages spacial awareness, letter knowledge and print and phonological awareness. This pun-filled story offers older children the chance to pick up on the more subtle humor. A welcome addition to libraries, especially those with a focus on early literacy.
