First of all, I love this whole series! The smaller sized, hardback book is so fun for kids. The illustrations are so fun and beautiful. This is a sweet story of courage, maturity, family. And I love that they sing through their troubles!

I love the Silver Tales series. The books are beautifully bound and illustrated on high quality paper. The stories match in caliber! It was fun to read with alliteration peppered throughout the story. Gwennie shows courage and love on an adventure that turned out differently than expected—-what we know as life! I would recommend this book!

Gwennie and the Great Green Forest is a fun adventure book for young kids learning to read story books. It is full of elevated vocabulary (just right for this age), literary devices, and complex sentences that make reading it enjoyable. It has adventure and Gwennie demonstrates resourcefulness, maturity, and self-sacrifice. She is a great role model. The pictures are beautifully illustrated as well.

I liked this book because Gwennie demonstrated courage and maturity for such a little girl despite precarious circumstances. She maintained a level head instead of panicking and managed to extricate herself and her siblings from their predicament and lead them all safely home.
