My Review
Wonder Walk is a short, cute read about a little boy named Johnny and his mom. They're out for a walk, and along the way, they see some things that Johnny wants to know more about. His mom tells him about sunflowers, bugs, and even birds. And when Johnny finally makes it home and goes to sleep, he dreams of all the wonderful things he saw on his walk earlier that day.
There's a little bit of a rhyme scheme to the story, which will thrill young readers. It's a cute story that's easy to read and follow along with. The illustrations are nicely done, too.
Parents of young readers will appreciate the simplicity of this story. Check it out!
4 stars!
