In Yes, Let’s by Galen Goodwin Longstreth a family packs their backpacks with a picnic lunch and snacks, and heads out to the woods to enjoy nature and being together. The simple, rhyming text and funny drawings show some of the fun things you can do in the woods: hiking, playing in streams, stopping for a picnic, exploring, or just relaxing and spending time with your family. I love how realistic the illustrations are: this is a normal, imperfect family. There are muddy hands and feet, an argument over wanting to wear sparkly shoes instead of boots for hiking, and Mom doesn’t look like a supermodel in her swimsuit. Getting away from our screens and electronics and taking some time to bond with our families and enjoy nature is a great way to spend some free time. Reading Yes, Let’s might inspire you to plan your next family adventure! See this book listed in our catalog
