The Not-So-Faraway Adventure by Andrew Larsen is one the children's books that I read this week that I really enjoyed. Theo and her Poppa enjoy spending time together. Poppa's trunk is full of souvenirs from his travels around the world. Looking through it gives Theo an idea for a great birthday for Poppa. Together they go to the beach for a special adventure of their own. After the trip, they have something to add to Poppa's trunk full of memories.
