Title: The Little Go Exploring by John Peterson
When Tom and Lucy find Grandpa’s secret room, they finally have a clue about why he disappeared two years ago. The Littles decide to go on a voyage to see, once and for all, what happened to him. What will happen when they enter the Dark Woods?
I’ve loved the Littles books ever since I was a kid, and this is one that I read back in those bygone days. Really, the plot is so very simple that I can’t go into it too much without giving away the entirety of the book. Suffice it to say that it’s wholesome and charming, with some fun adventure thrown in. If you read a Littles book be prepared for: a simple plot and story made up into short chapters for young readers. It’s also accentuated with charming drawings, which add just as much to the story as the text does.
After I finished reading this, my son asked if we could read it together. We just finished our last chapter book and I guess he wanted to see what this one is all about. I’m so glad that I get to share the Littles books with him.
I recommend The Littles Go Exploring to kids who are just starting to read chapter books. It would also be a really good family read-aloud.
