LoveReading View on Looking for Yesterday

One of Our Books of the Year 2017 | October 2017 Book of the Month

Beautiful illustrations full of interest and wonder accompany Alison Jay’s delightful story about a boy whose grandad helps him to embrace happy memories of the past but also look forward to new adventures. 

Boy enjoyed yesterday so much that he searches for a way to travel back in time until Grandad shares his own wonderful memories and shows him there are many more exciting times still to come. With interesting words to wrap your tongue around and so much to talk about on each page this is a super book to share with young children. ~ Shelley Fallows


Looking for Yesterday Synopsis

How can tomorrow ever be as good as yesterday? Boy doesn't think it can be and puts all his scientific knowledge to use, trying to work out how to go faster than the speed of light and make time go backwards. His grandad discovers him exploring the garden looking for wormholes, a possible shortcut back to yesterday - and reassures him that tomorrow will hold great experiences, which will become new treasured memories.
