Follow the Breadcrumbs is a beautifully written and illustrated imaginative story that will become a favorite in your collection. Especially if you are seeking garden stories for kids, books for outdoor kids or a picture book about animals.

This adventure starts with an ordinary trip to the lake, but then Will’s imagination takes over. His big idea is to build his own lake in his backyard so the animals can visit him. He digs the “lake,” fills it with water and uses breadcrumbs to lure the animals back to his house. Willy soon discovers a great idea can lead to a whole lot of trouble when every animal in the lake arrives in his backyard.

Read along with your kids as Willy works hard to get himself out of trouble and get all the animals back where they belong to entertain those visiting the lake.

Follow the Breadcrumbs is the second book in the Wild Imagination of Willy Nilly series. These interactive adventure books allow parents to see what simple everyday activities look like when viewed through the lens of a child’s imagination. The result is an experience that helps parents and their children bond.

Are these adventures really happening to Willy Nilly or are they just occurring in his mind? Perhaps for a child, reality and make believe aren’t necessarily different things?
