Books for Little Kids Who Love Adventure

Do you have children who love to explore? Rope them into reading with these books with adventurous characters.
on July 04, 2016
 

As parents, we know that often our kids’ interests are clear from the time they can crawl.

Children tend to lean toward the schedule they prefer, the things that give them comfort and joy, and the triggers that set them off very early in the game. It’s our job as parents to do what we can to support our children’s interests with books and learning opportunities from the get-go.

So what if you have an adventurer or explorer on your hands? A child who always tends take the long way around, instead of the shorter, more direct route? A child who thinks big, is always up for trying new things, and loves to live a little on the edge?
