Have you ever wished you could go away on your parent’s business trip or hide in their suitcase to explore a new city all on your own? Well, Katie and Steven sure have! They wonder why they always have to stay home when Mommy or Daddy travel for work. Once their favorite yellow teddy, Tootsie, comes up with the idea to stow himself away for Daddy’s trip to Washington, DC, Katie and Steven realize that they’ll be able to travel along, too—but just not in the way they first imagine!
Traveling Tootsie is a very adorable book about a little yellow teddy bear who belongs to a brother and sister who miss their daddy and mommy when they go on adventures without them. Usually it is for daddy's work, but the kids being too young don't understand. So, with a brilliant (and quite a cute) plan the little teddy gets to hide in daddy's suitcase in a snug little bed of his shoe. And he will go on the adventures and come back and tell the siblings all the stories.
This was a very cute storybook that would certainly help a child with any sadness when either mom or dad have to leave on a trip. It is also a very inventive idea to hide one of their favorite toys in the luggage. I liked how this story is based on the authors' own experiences with their family. The artwork is super sweet and would be appealing to any child. This could become a classic favorite in anyone's home.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
