Have you ever wished you could go away on your parent’s business trip or hide in their suitcase to explore a new city all on your own? Well, Katie and Steven sure have! They wonder why they always have to stay home when Mommy or Daddy travel for work. Once their favorite yellow teddy, Tootsie, comes up with the idea to stow himself away for Daddy’s trip to Washington, DC, Katie and Steven realize that they’ll be able to travel along, too—but just not in the way they first imagine!

My Review: 

Traveling Tootsie is a cute little story for young readers by Karen and Kathy Honaker. It was fun to travel around the Washington DC area with Katie and Steven’s teddy bear, Tootsie. I thought it was a great way to show the different sites around the United State’s capital city. I believe so many little ones will be entertained and let out a few giggles to see where else Tootsie would go to next. I thought it was a great learning experience for the reader, as well as, a heartwarming tale to read. I really liked it. 

Traveling Tootsie is illustrated by the talented artist Chiara Civati. I found the pictures to be beautifully colorful and visually appealing for a little ones’ eyes. I thought they were a perfect addition to help to tell the story. They are, also, a nice way for the smallest of readers to continue to stay interested in what is going on with Tootsie. 

I am giving Traveling Tootsie five stars. I highly recommend it for readers between the ages of three and seven years old. It would be a great addition on the shelves in an elementary school classroom and / or in a children’s public library. I am curious to see what other stories Karen and Kathy Honaker has in store for their young readers. 

I received a soft cover copy of Traveling Tootsie from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
