A Spooky Tale: A Walk With Our Teacher by Sue Wickstead is a great book to help pique your child’s imagination. Children of all ages will enjoy reading through the pages of this picture book. What originally started out as a project over 10 years ago, with a teacher and her students on their walk around the neighborhood, turns into a world of adventure. The beautiful illustrations and the insights of the children help to display a child’s imagination. Walk through the neighborhood where you will see and experience so many things. On the journey you will walk past many things; from a school, a park, the church, and the nursery school to a bridge where you will encounter a wide array of animals and creatures from a bear and a dragon to a dinosaur. What great fun your child will have walking through the neighborhood with the students and their teacher.
This book was cute and fun to read. I'm sure that it was just as fun to create for the teacher and the students. It is always great to discover new, engaging and exciting books. Children will enjoy reading this book just like I did. As an educational book, young readers will learn how to read maps and learn about trails. This book stimulates the mind and cognitive abilities to help children to dream and visualize the world around them. If you're looking for a book that your child would want to read over and over again, and maybe share with their friends, this is it.
