Have you ever wished you could go away on your parent’s business trip or hide in their suitcase to explore a new city all on your own? Well, Katie and Steven sure have! They wonder why they always have to stay home when Mommy or Daddy travel for work. Once their favorite yellow teddy, Tootsie, comes up with the idea to stow himself away for Daddy’s trip to Washington, DC, Katie and Steven realize that they’ll be able to travel along, too—but just not in the way they first imagine!

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from iRead Book Tours. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
Katie and Steven aren’t able to go on trips with their parents, but their magical teddy bear tells them to send him on their trips, and he can tell them all about it. Their teddy’s first trip is to Washington D.C., and he tours the entire city before going back home and sharing everything with Katie and Steven. They’re not sad anymore when their parents go somewhere because the teddy will tell them all about it.
What a fun travel book! Children will enjoy the bright, colorful illustrations as well as the story about Traveling Tootsie, their teddy bear. Even better, they will learn about Washington D.C. and some of the important places there such as the White House and the U.S. Capitol.
This is definitely a good book for a child’s library.
