When I read this new book, I Wanna Go Home, I had a flash back to a familiar song called Camp Grenada. If you are not familiar with the song it is about a young boy who is sent to summer camp and sends home humorous messages about his miserable life at camp. “I Wanna Go Home” is very similar since Boy Scout Alex and two of his siblings are sent to his grandparents retirement community for two weeks while his parents are on vacation. Reluctantly he goes and when he contacts his parents about his adventures you just have to smile. He is amazed to discover his grandfather doesn’t have real teeth and when he takes them out they look like jellyfish. He didn’t know that grandma and grandpa still had to go to school; square dancing school. They don’t even have a TV set, what will he do. Through all his escapades not only does he learn to enjoy his grandparents but he wants to stay an extra week.
This was a fun book to read all by myself! I think any parent or grandparent would enjoy sharing this with their children or grandchildren especially ages 5 – 9.
