    My grandchildren 7 and 3 love their bug jar!! No report on how they like Explorin or activity book so will report at a later time.

  2. This is a delightful book!

    Posted by Nancy Andersen on 24th Mar 2016

    It's an early reader chapter book of realistic fiction, set at the time of Stephen Ryan's seventh birthday. Stephen, called Ryan by his father, his full name by his mother and SR by his Papa, is feeling the desire for independence befitting a seven-year-old. He likes to explore the family's country property by himself, and has many adventures during his explorations, including some startling moments.
    What makes this book delightful are the wonderful themes, the positive ideals presented. Among these are the family relationships, especially the one between SR and his Papa, the proper treatment of plants and animals, and the value of spending time outdoors.
    Papa spends time with SR and teaches him about nature; his parents support his interests with their birthday gifts. Papa shows him how to catch fireflies, briefly keep them in a special jar, then release them unharmed, teaching respect for nature. Stephen's outdoor explorations are good for his mind and body. Excellent! Both the relationships between the characters, and the themes in this book are so important that should return in a sequel. Also, they lend themselves well to a series.
    Readers ready for chapter books will enjoy the uncluttered text, a few fun vocabulary words, and Stephen Ryan's original songs. They will like finding out the origin of the book's title.

  3. Fun & Droppable!

    The EXPLORE is a 32 oz. mason jar made of plastic. Translation: it’s light and completely droppable!"

    The base of the lid glows in the dark making it more fun and useful during night explorations and the attached handle is perfect for little hands.
