Reading is super important to us in my family. As a kid, I loved reading through series like The Babysitter’s Club and couldn’t wait for the next one to come out. I love that all 3 of my kids (14, 11 & 5) all love to read and love heading to the library to check out books. My 11 year old daughter has requested a Kindle for Christmas because of how much she loves to read. I love it when the kids find a book series that they fall in love with. We were asked to read & review a series called Travels with Gannon and Wyatt. Travels with Gannon and Wyatt is a middle-grade adventure series written by Patti Wheeler and Keith Hemstreet. Gannon & Wyatt are 15-year-old twin brothers that travel the world and take you along for the ride. There are 3 books in the series: Botswana (released May 2013), Great Bear Rainforest (released October 2013) & Egypt (to be released January 2014). My daughter read the series & her favorite book was Travels with Gannon and Wyatt: Great Bear Rainforest. In the front of each of the books is a map, showing kids the part of the world that Gannon & Wyatt are traveling to, plus there is also a list of common phrases translated from that part of the world. I personally love that there are real pictures in the book, showing the landscape, animals, landmarks and more. The books are written as journal entries by both Gannon & Wyatt. My daughter liked that it went back and forth between the two boys, telling about things from their own points of view. All three of these books are a great way to spark a child’s interest in traveling & exploring other parts of the world. Seeing it through the eyes of kids that are close to their own age makes it more real.
