The Travel Adventures of PJ Mouse
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!
In book one, you can join PJ on his travel adventures 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.
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.
These two books are adorable! PJ Mouse is the perfect little friend to accompany Emily on her trips with her family. In the first book, they travel through Canada in a fifth wheel. I’ve always wanted to travel the country like that, though I’m not sure how much of a camper I am. I think it would just be such a great adventure. This book proves that it is! I especially love their visit to Quebec.
When they visit Australia in the second book, PJ gets to do things that I dream of! I’d love to visit Queensland and see all of the sights. I am pretty sure I could not handle the flight though! We can always dream right? And that is what your child will do when they read PJ’s travel adventure stories. The characters are sweet and I loved the illustrations that bring these stories to life. The text is easy to read and your child will also learn about Canada and Australia in a fun way. They’ll learn things without it actually feel like learning! That is the best way to learn! I definitely recommend these books for the children in your lives!
