We got this one because we loved the Bobby and the Big Road book that is featured in level K of language arts, and it was such a hit! We don’t have forests where we live, so by reading this beautiful book, it made my boys feel like they experienced wood-side life too, even if just for the week it took to read this book… we will be reading it more often !

This story makes me want to go explore the outdoors more! We really enjoyed this book as a read aloud (children ages 8 and 5).
