As part of our family bedtime routine, like most families, we like to read books. My son is a huge fan of adventure books! Our most recent read has been the first book of the Travels with Gannon and Wyatt series.
About the Book
“In the tradition of the historic journals kept by explorers such as Lewis and Clark, Dr. David Livingstone, and Captain James Cook, comes the fictional adventure book series Travels with Gannon and Wyatt. From Africa to the South Pacific, these twin brothers have traveled to all corners of the globe. The journals, photographs and video compiled on their real-life expeditions provide the foundation for this action-packed educational series.”
Travels with Gannon and Wyatt is a middle-grade adventure series written by Patti Wheeler and Keith Hemstreet. These adventure books are written different than other books we have read before. The stories are are told from the perspective of twin teenage brothers in journal format, which means that instead of chapters, the brothers take turns writing a few paragraphs to a few pages about what is going on. It is a fun way to read an adventure and keep things moving or stop for the night when this mom simply cannot keep her eyes open much longer.
The Travels with Gannon and Wyatt series include:
- Botswana (released May 2013)
- Great Bear Rainforest (released October 2013)
- Egypt (to be released January 2014)
Right now THREE Kindle Fires are being given away on the Travels with Gannon and Wyatt Facebook page in November.
Our first book of the series that we read was Travels with Gannon and Wyatt: Botswana. Each night my son, without fail, asked to read the book, if that is any indication of how much he liked it!
We had a great time reading about the brothers’ adventures and there were even a handful of pictures throughout the book, which I found especially helpful when they were talking about animals we were not familiar with. Another fun part of the book are the maps that are found on the inside of the front and back cover. My son loved looking at them and asking me questions about the locations we were reading about.
My son has been telling everyone about “his new books” and how he can’t wait to read the one about the bear (Travels with Gannon and Wyatt: Great Bear Rainforest). Lucky for him, that is the next book we will be reading together!
