About the Lobo Goes to the Galapagos
Author: C.L. Murphy

Recommended Ages: 3 to 7
Length: 32 pages
This book is a hit with my three year old daughter. When I received it, she was in the middle of watching a TV show and I asked her if she’d like to read a story instead. I got a fairly typical toddler response – she ignored me. I decided to start reading the story aloud to myself.
Not even two pages in she was on my lap reading with me, and each time a new character was introduced she giggled at their name.
Her eyes were glued to the colourfully illustrated pages and she followed the story to the end. When we reached the last page, she was very interested in the map of the Galapagos islands, which we studied together for a couple of minutes.
Before I had the chance to ask her what she thought of the story, she was already asking me to read it again.
I adore a book that can make my girls giggle, so this one will be read over and over. The repetition of some sentences also makes it a good tool for my 6 year old who is practicing word recognition. The bit of geographical knowledge gained by studying the map is a nice touch too. Lovable Lobo makes learning fun!

“What an adorable story! I read this to my nephew and he couldn’t stop giggling at the silliness of Roxy as well as Lobo’s cute friends Bobby, Sunny, Coconut and Sandra. The author was very clever in portraying a tale of friendship, adventure and excitement that is sure to enthuse young minds around the world.” ~ 5 Star Review, Gina D., Amazon
“Who knew geography and learning about animals could be this much fun? Lobo Goes to the Galapagos is my new favorite children’s book and is highly recommended. ” ~ Jack Magnus, Readers’ Favorite
