Oscar’s Adventures in the Woods, by Pam Stone  Illustrated by Eric Hectorand Candace Schinzler-Bell
What an adorable, beautifully illustrated and easily understood book for young children!
It is all about Oscar the Turtle.  He wishes he could be free to roam like the pet cat in the house and one day when his owner, Shelby is cleaning his aquarium, Oscar goes for a walk, gets lost, which turns out to be an adventure in the woods that Oscar really likes.
All young children will learn that some pets like to be free rather than kept as a pet.  Shelby, the little girl in this book, learns this from her Mother and Father, and the actions of Oscar, the Turtle.
Again, the illustrations in this book are just beautiful.  This is one of those books where young children will want to have this book read to them over and over again as they stare at the pictures and ask questions about the story.  This book will be loved very much.
This book was provided to me by Bostick Communications/Outskirt Press, and the author, in exchange for a review.
