Let's sing out loud and wave to cows as we drive out of town.
Let's park the car beneath the trees and trade our shoes for boots,
Let's set the timer, all say "Cheese!" then head into the woods.
In this fun book about a family's day in the great outdoors, the simple, rhyming text is enhanced by comical illustrations that bring wit and energy to every page. Packaged in a smaller size for little hands and easy to pack up, this book would be a perfect read-aloud during the car ride, along with a great way to recap a trip at the end. The illustrations inside the front cover serve as a reminder of things to pack, and the story inspires activities to plan. This little book serves as a loving tribute to family togetherness.
Not only are there endpaper checklists of animals, hiking gear and groceries to find, but very observant readers will notice a whole other subplot going on in the illustrations. Ready the backpacks—this is sure to inspire many a family. - Kirkus Reviews
"I LOVE Yes, Let's and have given it to lots of kids and their parents who always let me know that it is a favorite in their house. It is a fantastic read-aloud for the rhythm and the fun and adventurous story. And there is so much going on in the illustrations that it can be read again and again without ever getting old. The book has that 'best day of childhood' feeling that the reader wants to come back to."--Kristin Russ, Powell's Books
