It's the last day of school and Arthur wants Buster to come with him on vacation instead of going to camp. Arthur's mom and dad say that he can't come so he's disappointed. Everybody packs their stuff and they load the inside of the car and the roof. Arthur's family gets to the hotel. They only have one tiny little room for all of them and the pool is smaller than D.W.'s bathtub, she says. They have problems on their vacation. First, only the parents enjoy their dinner, then they try to write postcards, but they haven't done anything yet. Next it rains. Arthur fixes their trip by planning out a whole bunch of fun stuff for the family. On Friday it stopped raining and it was the best day yet. They went to the beach. When they got home, Buster was already there. Arthur and Buster had missed each other, but Arthur had a great time with his family on vacation. This was a good book, but not the best I ever read. Marc Brown is one of my favorite authors. I'd recommend this book to a second or third grader who likes to watch the Arthur T.V. show.

This story is about Arthur going on vacation with his family. Arthur didn't really want to go away with his family. He wanted to be with his best friend. At the end of the story, Arthur really does have fun and comes back to show his friend all the pictures. We liked this story because Arthur did a lot of fun things with his family.

Summer vacation withe Arthur's Family May 12 2013
By Summerroll - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
School's out for summer, and Arthur's family packs up to go on their family vacation. D.W. wants to bring her dollhouse. Arthur wants to bring his best friend, Buster.

By the time they're done packing, the station wagon is stuffed to the gills, and bags and an inflatable shark are tethered to the roof of the car. Buster went to summer cap, and Arthur wistfully imagines all the fun Buster's having without him: archery, canoe, roasting marshmallows.

Meanwhile, Arthur's family's vacation meets some disappointments. "Ocean View Motel" isn't exactly on the beach. The room is smaller than expected. Worst of all, it starts to rain.

Rather than stew in the motel room, however, Arthur's father shows that a family can create its own fun during a vacation. Who says you can't ride a cow in the rain? Movies with popcorn, anyone?

Pluck and optimism overcome a bad situation. Arthur shows that family fun is a state of mind; happiness is being with people you love.

The story flows gently and easily, and the illustrations are, as usual, humorous in their details. D.W. is the thorn in Arthur's side whose liveliness generates some laughs. And as always, the last page has a nice joke. A gentle, nostalgic story about a family vacation that everyone can relate to.
Family favorite! Oct. 16 2013

My kids love Arthur, and they love this book. I don't mind reading it with them, because it is fun to read. It's a good length, and moves along at a good pace. Marc Brown has a way of presenting childhood perplexities in a humorous manner that can be appreciated by adults as well as children. We would definitely recommend this book.
