Reading is one of my absolute favorite things to do. When I was a little girl, my reading was the subject of many family jokes. No matter where I was, or what I was doing...I always had to be reading something. My mom always loves to ask me if I still read the back of cereal boxes at breakfast ;)
Being such an avid reader, I have definitely hoped to pass that love along to my children, and my oldest daughter Skylar seems to be following along quite nicely in my footsteps. I am always on the look out for great books that will keep her entertained, use her imagination, and expand her mind. I was thrilled when we received the Travels with Gannon and Wyatt series for exactly all those reasons!
Travels with Gannon and Wyatt is an adventure series written by Patti Wheeler and Keith Hemstreet perfect for your middle-aged school kids. Twin brothers Gannon and Wyatt travel to exotic locations full of mystery and adventure. The Travels with Gannon and Wyatt series include:
Botswana (released May 2013)
Great Bear Rainforest (released October 2013)
Egypt (to be released January 2014) (and I just have to say...my daughter thought it was THE coolest thing ever that we got to read Egypt before it was released ;)
My daughter was excited to start right at the beginning, so we decided to start our new adventure with Gannon and Wyatt as they traveled to Botswana!
From the beginning of the book, we found a lot to keep us engaged. My daughter especially enjoyed the format...where you have two different points of view written in the style of a journal. My girl is also a major animal-lover so it was really exciting to read about so many different kind of animals you would encounter on an African safari. I felt like the authors did a great job of making this a book that boys AND girls would both enjoy, and I personally loved reading it with my daughter and am looking forward to continue on with the next book, Great Bear Rainforest. And you KNOW its a good book when you walk around the corner to yell to your daughter it's time for school and this is what you find...
