Toot & Puddle

Ages:     4-6

Who wrote it? Holly Hobbie 

What’s it about? Toot and Puddle are the best of friends with very different interests. One is a homebody, and the other loves to travel. When Toot spends the year traveling around the world, Puddle enjoys receiving his postcards. On opposing pages, Toot’s adventures are laid out beside Puddle’s hometown activities.

Why we love it: This is the first in Toot and Puddle's many adventures, and it’s a wonderful introduction to the series. When Puddle begins to miss his friend, he throws himself into a staycation—and learns to savor all the amazing details in his own backyard. It teaches kids that exploration can take place every day, even from home.
