Popcorn and Jellybean had never ventured down the path beyond the big tree. But since they never really did anything exciting and even though it made them a little nervous at first, they decided it would be a fun adventure for a couple of days since. What could possibly go wrong? Plenty, as it turned out, if the explorers were not prepared! Join them as they took on new challenges each day, learn how to survive by following the behaviors of the animals they encountered, and go where Mother Nature led them. And who knows, maybe we would learn as well!

Personal Opinion:

First of all my little boy is not yet two years of age, therefore I thought the book would be filled with more illustrations. There are illustrations, but not enough for an almost two year old monkey child. The illustrations that are in the book are bright and vivid and are of nature and animals.(My little one loves the bear picture.) The story itself is amusing as well as informative on how to survive in nature or to know some basic things. When he grows up more, I do plan on sharing this book with him if he should be into nature. Its good for older children, but not for almost two year old little boys.

  1. Thank you for your review of our book. Much appreciated. I am glad that you will read it again to your child as he grows older. The target age for this book is aimed at middle graders, so I am sure he will probably get more from it when he reaches that age.
