Synopsis from Goodreads
Kid’s most beloved unicorns are ready for their own vacation. After having fun at birthday parties all around the world, the unicorns can’t wait to prance and play. But with the whole planet at their fingertips, where will they go and what will they do?

With carnivals, carousels, parades, and swimming all on their list, they’re excited to try everything out for themselves. And since unicorns can be hard to spot when they travel about, maybe keep a sharp eye out and see if we can catch them having some fun.

Can you guess where the beloved unicorns will end up?

My Thoughts
I’ve been in a bit of a children’s picture book phase recently, so the next few reviews from me will be for picture books. Out of the 8 I’ve read so far, this one is my favorite. Here are my pros and cons for Where Do Unicorns Go On Vacation?:

Pros

  1. Who doesn’t love unicorns? I know my granddaughter (age 3) sure does and I’m positive she’d love this book.
  2. It is written in verse and the rhymes flow very well. There is a comfortable rhythm when you read the book. I think that the sing-song verse can help draw kids into a story.
  3. The illustrations (by Nejla Shojaie) are adorable. The images of the unicorns interspersed into “real life” situations and places are amusing and entertaining.
  4. I think this book strikes a great balance between the detailed illustrations to enjoy and the amount of reading required. I particularly this younger children will appreciate the balance.

Cons
None!

Summary
This is a whimsical book that explores where unicorns might decide to go on vacation. While some potential locations are provided in the story, I think parents and children could have a fun discussion about what other places they think unicorns might go and why. You might get some entertaining answers!

I’m pretty sure this book would be read and enjoyed over and over again by most kids.

This book is targeted to children ages 3 to 8 (Kindergarten to 2nd grade) and I agree that it fits in that range, although most likely toward the lower ages. It is also the third in the “Go on Vacation” series by this author. The other books are titled Where Do Elves Go on Vacation? and Where Does Santa Go on Vacation?
