Yes, Let’s – Galen Goodwin Longstreth (Author), Maris Wicks (Illustrator)
In this cute book about a family’s camping trip, the simple, rhyming text is enhanced by comical illustrations that bring wit and energy to every page. Packaged in a smaller size for little hands and easy to pack up, this book would be a perfect read-aloud during the car ride, along with a great way to recap a trip at the end. The illustrations inside the front cover serve as a reminder of things to pack, and the story inspires activities to plan. There is even a space in the back to paste a picture of the reader’s own family trip. This little book serves as a loving tribute to family togetherness.
Arlo and I had a lot of fun with this book – finding sneaky forest animals throughout the scenes (the little squirrel stealing the sock) and giggling at some of the family member’s antics.
