Get out there with curious Johnny and his patient Mommy, in this colourful, rhyming book, celebrating all the wonders of the everyday world. What do they see? What do they hear? What do they talk about?
Wonder Walk explores the simple pleasures of a walk between a boy and his mom. Johnny is very observant first noticing the pretty sunflowers. As he and his mom continue their walk, he sees something that he perceives as scary. Calmly, his mom explains that it is a cuddle bug and will cause him no harm. In fact, it wants to wish him goodnight.
Since the sun is still out and the sky is blue, inquisitive Johnny questions his mother’s response. Quick thinking mom distracts Johnny by pointing a mother bird and her baby. Soon Johnny tires from his curiosity and falls asleep sweetly dreaming about his walk of wonder.
With big. bold illustrations and concise, rhyming text, Wonder Walk is a story that young children will enjoy and may prompt families to take their own walk together to observe nature and ask questions.
Disclaimer: I received an electronic copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
My name is ILHAM which is pronounced the way its spelled. As a kid, I hated my name and did get teased for being a “ham”. But now that I’m an adult, I love the uniqueness and the strength that my name conveys. I definitely have not met another Ilham for sure. It means inspiration in Arabic, by the way.
I live with my 2 sons & my husband and my 20 lb kitty, Beauty, within a house that’s booby-trapped with Legos. My crazy family are my inspiration for story writing and story-telling. I love to travel with them as well as earning new memories through adventures abroad, some of which I have documented in this blog.
