Meet the Tuckabees. They're going on vacation. But not an ordinary vacation. They always choose the wackiest, weirdest destinations for their family trips. This year their stops include visits to the world's largest underwear, a narwhal petting zoo, and the amazing Cheezie Popz factory. No matter where this family goes, they're sure to have tons of fun when they get there. Come along for the ride--and along the way, learn to tell apart they're, their, and there. These words sound alike, but they're different in meaning. Figure out how to keep them straight as you join the Tuckabees on their adventures.

Review quote

"Cleary is perhaps best known for his 'Words Are CATegorical' series, which teaches young readers about parts of speech, grammar, and wordplay. This story, however, has a plot in addition to providing language instruction. The book follows the Tuckabee family on a driving vacation to several unusual and humorous locations, such as the World's Largest Underwear and the Cheezie Pop factory; along the way, kids learn to tell the difference between the words they're, there, and their. Paillot's cartoon illustrations are full of detail and color, and there's plenty to notice here. For example, the family's overnight stay at the Indoor Camping Acres depicts the Tuckabees doing everything from filing out crosswords to watching cowboy movies on television. The endpapers feature a stylized map of the entire trip. The story is funny and stands on its own. VERDICT: A hilarious and worthwhile addition to collections serving elementary school students."--School Library Journal
