This is such a great book, full of sensory imagery and adventure. The author, Michael Rosen takes his little readers through tall grasses, roaring winds, heaving storms and monstrous mountains. Each outdoorsy “obstacle” is followed by a mantra,
“We can’t go under it, we can’t go over it, we have to go through it!”
Maybe it’s just me, but this mantra is such a great lesson for little kids to learn in life. Things can be tough, sometimes we have to deal with it, and go straight on through. At least, that’s what I get out of it– my charge on the other hand just wants to go on a bear hunt!
