Reading to my son has always been one of my favorite things to do. We read, and read, and read at bedtime until the “just one more” plea was interrupted with lots of yawns. Of course, now that he is almost 13, I get him to read to me! He actually loves reading so much that he volunteers to read to the Elementary School kids during his study hall time.
One of our favorite types of books was one like the No Yeti Yet. He loved fun, adventurous, find the objects on each page books.
About No Yeti Yet:
It’s a snowy, blowy, wintry day — just perfect for a yeti hunt! Or so thinks big brother. But younger brother is not as convinced. Questions abound: Have you ever seen a yeti? Is a yeti strong? Can a yeti run fast?
Children will love trying to find the yeti in the pictures as the boys continue on their quest. Recommended for ages 4 to 8.
Two brothers take off on an adventure to find the Yeti. They are enjoying themselves, laughing, having fun outside but they don’t even now what the Yeti looks like. As we read along, each page has it’s own adventure- you have to find the Yeti hidden- sometimes in plain site, sometimes cleverly hidden in fun places. My son used to ask me to read books like these OVER and OVER again. Interactive books are great to keep the attention of even the most active child!
I love that the boys use their imagination and their sibling bond to create an afternoon to remember. They aren’t in the house watching TV- they are outside on an adventure. Even though they don’t know what a Yeti looks like, they figure out exactly who the Yeti is by what he likes, what he does and how hard he is to find. The older brother is very patient with all the questions- something most siblings don’t have these days.
This book is a sweet story with a fun ending that your kids will love. Kids will love the adventure, parents will love the sibling love shown throughout the book. Just to keep the book current, there is even a Yeti selfie involved.
