Book Review: Caillou at the Sugar Shack

I will not be doing another Netflix Nation post until January. But look another book review! This time it is for the fun child character Caillou. If you have any small children, this book might hit the spot. Especially if you are in the winter season and in the mood for warm treats.

Title: Caillou at the Sugary Shack by Carine Laforest and Mario Allard

Publication Date: January 9, 2018

Source: Netgalley

Purchase: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Book Depository


Summary on Netgalley: When Caillou's family makes a springtime visit to Jonas' ranch, he takes them on a sleigh ride to a maple forest where Caillou discovers how the maple sap is collected from maple trees. At the sugar shack, Caillou learns about the maple syrup transformation process. But the best surprise is outside, when Jonas pours the hot syrup on the snow and everyone gets to enjoy Caillou's new favorite treat, maple toffee!

Review

If you want a fun read to cuddle up with a child or have a short read along, this book is perfect. Caillou gets a chance to go outside his element with his family visiting a ranch. But what's really exciting is learning about the maple trees and getting to sample the delicious maple sap. The book is perfect for young readers both in length and not being too detailed or confusing. Kids can even try reading for themselves and I'm certain both parents and teachers alike can make learning to read extra fun with these books. And for those experiencing winter, who doesn't like reading about travels and enjoying warm sugary treats? I'm not the target audience and I enjoyed reading this. Highly recommend!

Rating: 5 Stars

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend.
