Maya and Teddy Take a Walk
by A.J. Gillard
What better way is there to spend an afternoon than to explore your own backyard?
Join Maya and Teddy as they trek through the trees and explore all the wonders of the animals, insects and birds right in their very own neighborhood in Maya and Teddy Take a Walk from children’s author, A.J. Gillard. This delightful, rhyming early reader tells the story of Maya’s adventure with her teddy bear, as she gets to know a whole new cast of friends—from the worm who crosses her toes, to the butterfly who lands on Teddy’s nose, to the pig and goat and the fox wearing a thick fur coat!
On a day when it seems the world is abuzz with activity, Maya and Teddy Take a Walk and discover a whole new world of possibilities, right outside their door. Wonderfully illustrated by the renowned artist, Genevieve Sideleau, this whimsical poem will entrance the earliest of readers as they begin to explore their own backyards and get to know the creatures living all around them—the perfect blend of instilling a love of reading and of exploring nature.
