travels with gannon and wyatt book series {& giveaway!}



My boys love to read! That makes me so happy because I love reading and I know it is such an important part of learning and development. Having a 9 year old boy, I have learned that it can be hard to find fun books for his age that he can get enthralled in and that will challenge him (his perspective, his vocabulary, his reading level, etc).

I was excited when I heard about Travels with Gannon & Wyatt. Travels with Gannon & Wyatt is a middle school adventure book series that takes children to exotic locations around the world. Each novel entertains through fun tales of exploration, while promoting an understanding of world geography, cultures and wildlife. I knew my 9 year old would love this! He loves adventure and I knew it would be so neat for him to learn about different places and cultures.

There are three books in the Travels with Gannon & Wyatt series. Botswana, Great Bear Rainforest, and Egypt (to be released in January 2014). The first book is Botswana and my son loved it! When Gannon and Wyatt travel to Botswana for an African safari, they hear that a poacher has shot and wounded a lioness. They set off into the wild in the hopes of saving the mother and her cubs before the poacher finishes the job.



I gave him the book to read after school one day and he devoured it. He finished it the same day and was telling me all about the story. I loved that because he doesn't always have much to say about the books he reads and I feel it is important for him to talk about the book afterwards so he can recall the things he learned and ask any questions if needed. He was proud of himself for reading it so quickly and it was fun to share a great conversation together about it. Now he is onto the other books in the series!


We are giving away the Travels with Gannon and Wyatt series to one of our readers! Leave a comment with who you would like to give this book series to and you will be entered! For a second entry, you can share this giveaway on Facebook or Twitter. The giveaway will end Monday, November 18th at 11:59 PT.

Oh! I would love to share these books with my 12-yearold girl. Yes. She's twelve. But being a Swedish immigrant makes reading in English a bit tricky. The themes of these books would really interest her!
