I like this storu of an armadillo who wants to travel and see the world.The story is a simple lesson in Texas geography and is fun and interesting to read. It would be a good book to read to 2 to 7-year old kids.

I enjoyed the rhythm of the text, and found my boys (age 4 & 7) and my husband mezmerized. Their usual fare is nonfictional dinosaur books so its a relief to read something with pizazz. Its especially interesting if you live in Texas and have been to some of the locations.

This book is an okay book. We think it's an okay book because the letters didn't go with the pictures and the pictures didn't go with the writings. We don't like the book.
