Book Description for The Travel Adventures of PJ Mouse in Canada (BOOK ONE):
PJ Mouse, an adorable little stuffed animal, was lost and alone until young Emily heard his cries for help. Now, along with his new family, PJ gets to travel the world-discovering exciting new places and people along the way!
Come join PJ on his first adventure across Canada as he hikes on a glacier in the Rockies, finds a salt lake in the prairies, and walks on the ocean floor in Nova Scotia.
My review: This book is utterly adorable. I really contemplated buying PJ mouse for myself. I think any book that shows travel and the world to a child is a great thing.
The entire adventure with PJ made me feel like I was in Canada traveling with him. He gets to hike on a glacier how cool is that?
This book can give you a bit of nostalgia if you were like me you had that one stuffed animal you just adored and took with you every where. This book made me think of those travels with my parents where I took my little stuffed animal. It is a shame they don’t come alive toy story style.
This book is utterly adorable the illustrations are fantastic. I would buy this for any child in my life.
Book Description for The Travel Adventures of PJ Mouse in Queensland (BOOK TWO):
PJ Mouse, an adorable little stuffed animal, was lost and alone until young Emily heard his cries for help. Now, along with his new family, PJ gets to travel the world – discovering exciting new places, people, and animals along the way!
Come join PJ on this, his second adventure, along the coast of Queensland, as he snorkels at the Great Barrier Reef, chats with a Loggerhead turtle in the midst of a great undertaking, and explores the tropical rainforest- until he has to be rescued by one of the local friendly wildlife.
My Review: PJ Mouse is back and he is just as adorable as the first book. This time he is in Australia. This is one lucky mouse, he gets to go all through Australia (Queensland) he gets to see new people & animals and the Great Barrier Reef. (I am so jealous of this stuffed mouse)
He is still adorable, lovable and I would still buy this book for any kiddo I know. This book does a great job showing the world. Check out his photo below, you know you want a PJ Mouse for yourself.
I would personally buy both these books together. The lovable mouse, the fantastic illustrations and the education in the book make this an amazing book!
