    Pack Your Bags! Another Adventure Awaits!

    Gannon and Wyatt are off on another amazing adventure, filled with danger, excitement and yes, more learning experiences! Travels with Gannon and Wyatt: Great Bear Rain Forest by Patti Wheeler and Keith Hemstreet follows previous books in the series seen through the eyes of these brothers as they experience more of what the world has to offer firsthand.

    It would be wonderful if all children could experience the thrill of other lands, the danger, and actually walk on the soil of places like Great Bear Rain Forest, but for them to read about this amazing journey through the unique “eyes” of Gannon and Wyatt is an experience in itself. Geared for middle grade readers, the magnetic pull and the pacing are perfect, not too dark, not too drawn out, not overly embellished, once again, a wonderful way to hook young readers on the joy of books and a great learning tool for expanding one’s horizons!

    I received a review copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    4 STARS

    What a fun adventure series. I learned a lot and it was exciting book too. Had no idea what a spirit bear was. I also did not know where the Great Bear Rainforest was either. I know I will be on the lookout for more books with Gannon and Wyatt in the future. This is a clean read that is full of danger, travel, wildlife and great scenery too.

    Twins Gannon and Wyatt and their parents get offered to come on a trip. they have to leave the next day to come. Their family loves to travel. So their family was going to join Captain Colin to take some famous environmental scientist to study the Great Bear Rainforest and see the spirit bear and his habitat than to volunteer at a whale research lab and help repairing it after storm damage.

    They were told about bears and what to do by their guide Alu. She was a member of the First Nation people of Canada. They were not expecting a petite teenager.
    The first area they went to they had no luck the only bears they saw had died in their den of starvation.

    The Captain Colin and Dr. Brezner went to shore to search out the spirit bear and they disappeared. Neither radio a problem. Gannon and Wyatt's parents took the smaller boat out to find them and more trouble happened.

    I read the book in one setting did not want to put it down. It was a exciting read. I was surprised to find out that their is really a Gannon and Wyatt that travel around with their parents and helped come up with the stories. You can even follow them online the website is at bottom of this post. I know I want to see their photos. I think this book can be read and enjoyed by a wide audience.
    Makes me want to go exploring. At least to a zoo.

    I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it by Netgalley.
