Beautiful illustrations. Talks about a special time shared between a boy and his father.

Charcoal, pastel , and colored pencil illustrations. About the joy and importance of the quality time that should be spent between father and son. Boys would like to read more so than girls.

This is a fantastic example of realistic fiction. It is set in present day and tells a realistic story about a father and son who explore a grain elevator. It creates a great picture of this father and son relationship. It also gives a great window into a little boys perspective on his world.

Father takes little boy to see the Kansas mountains, which don't exist because Kansas is so flat. They arrive at a grain elevator, go up, can see the whole county, as if on top of a mountain. Exciting because boy gets to go alone with no siblings, special time with dad.

Nice, well done, but I'm just not sure I actually enjoyed it. Nor do I think kids would unless they can directly identify with it. The illustrative style does surely make one feel as if one is in hot, dusty, flat Kansas, though.
