We love to read at our house. There is nothing I like better than to curl up with a good book at the end of a long hard day. It is wonderful to immerse yourself in a story that takes you away. One of my goals has been to instill a love a reading in my children. When they were little I would snuggle up with them and a pile of fun children’s books to read. We would spend hours reading great stories and I loved that time. Now that they are older, they don’t want to snuggle as much, but they still like to read together. We always have a family book that I read out loud together in the evening just before bed. It is a wonderful way to relax and have an adventure together. Since we have a range of ages, sometimes it is difficult to find a story or series that they are all interested in. I was given the opportunity to review the Travels with Gannon & Wyatt book series and it has been wonderful. Though it is a middle grade reader, we all found it interesting.The Travels with Gannon & Wyatt is a 3 book series beginning with the first in the series “Botswana” and continuing with “Great Bear Rainforest” and the soon to be released “Egypt”. In “Botswana” we meet twins Gannon & Wyatt who travel the world with their parents. On this adventure they travel to Africa for a Safari experience and have many exciting events along the way. It is written in journal entry style alternating between Gannon & Wyatt, so you get to see their different personalities. My children appreciated the fact that there were a few pictures sprinkled throughout the text. These were actual pictures of Africa and its environment. I appreciated the fact that there was a lot of factual text woven throughout this fiction adventure. Our kids are being challenged in school to read more non-fiction literature and I love the fact that these stories weave the two together. It helps my children learn that facts can be interesting. If you are looking for a good middle reader series, this is a great one to try. Your kids will enjoy reading it on their own or you can go on the adventure together.
I am excited to be able to giveaway a 3 book series of Travels with Gannon & Wyatt to one of my readers. This would be perfect to give someone for Christmas. Enter the rafflecopter below (open to US residents only)
