Written and Illustrated by Frann Preston-Gannon
Dave loves his cave. But what if there’s a better cave out there, with greener grass and bigger rocks?
Dave loves his cave. The inside is decorated exactly the way he likes it. There’s a spot for a fire and the grass is always green. But what if there’s a better cave out there, with greener grass and bigger rocks? Dave needs to find out for himself. But it turns out that good caves are hard to find—they’re either too noisy, or too spare, or too crowded, until he finds one in particular that looks much more promising. The rocks are big, and the grass is greener than any he’s ever seen . . . but why does it look so familiar? This humorous romp from celebrated author-illustrator Frann Preston-Gannon reminds readers that sometimes there’s no place like home.
–From the Publisher
Another simple yet fun book. Teach kids how to talk like a cave man while reading this book to them. They will notice that the best cave for Dave is the cave that he started with. Discuss what makes their home so great and why there is no place like home.
