Review

Early one morning, a father wakes his son to go on a hike. They drive out of the city and into the woods. They hike, observe nature, go rock climbing, plant a tree, and take pictures. As the sun begins to set, they hike back and drive home. Back home they change into their pajamas and enjoy chocolate chip cookies and milk while they look at a scrapbook of their adventures. Exhausted, they fall asleep on the couch. The only words written in this book are onomatopoeia that enhance the rich and vivid illustrations. Even without words, the story is clear and sweet as the readers watch a young boy and his father explore the world around them. Very young, beginner readers will enjoy the detailed illustrations that will spark their imaginations and inspire them to go outside too. Recommended Elly McGillivray Watkins, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
