I really enjoyed reading these books to my children, the stories were cute, and the illustrations were bright and fit the story perfectly. I liked that with each story, by the end, Terry has learned a lesson about making new friends, helping those in need, and never starying to far from home. I also liked that the writing was done in a way, that these have become easy readers for my 7 year old, who is still learning how to read.
I recommend these books to anyone with small children, and those that are learning how to read. If you want to order any of these titles, please click on the floowing links:
