My kids didn’t want to stop reading after just one story! We read all of these in one sitting! They’re the perfect amount of suspense and adventure for young kids and early readers!

My son (7 yr.) read this book to me. He said he enjoyed the first part of the book and would like more Johnny and Judy stories.

There are two stories in this book. Both include the two main characters. The story of the two children is full of adventure as they visit their family friends who are forest rangers and stop a forest fire! The other story is an adventure of finding a pot of gold under a rainbow. Full of adventure! He finished it in 3 days!

These stories are well written, engaging and teach helpfulness and how even at a young age children can be responsible and use wisdom when making decisions. We loved the pictures and are excited to find all this quality literature available for our family.

Judy and Johnny turned the little donkeys around. They rode as fast as they could. They rode up the steep path to the Lookout Tower. 

“Fire! Fire! Mr. Lee!” they called.

These three delightful stories, illustrated by Lucia Patton and set in the Colorado Rockies in the 1940s, have messages of kindness, service, courage, and respect for nature.

Children will enjoy following the adventures of Johnny and Judy in the first two stories when they save the day by alerting the forest ranger of a growing forest fire, and later when they learn how to pan for gold. In the third story, Randy loves to watch the trains go by every afternoon. One day he notices that something is wrong with his favorite freight engine. Can Randy help protect the train from the incoming Crimson Rocket?
