Johnny Skip 2 is a world traveler; a collector of small things, and an adventurer all wrapped up into one little kid. But he needs your help. Come travel with Johnny and his little dog Grounder as they journey to the wonderful land of Australia in search of native muntrie berries. Adding to the adventure is a mother kangaroo that has lost her ‘joey’ and this leads Johnny on a quest to find her. The Johnny Skip 2 adventure offer new sights and colorful Aussie phrases from ‘The Land Down Under.’ Johnny Skip 2 is a great interactive read-a-long that kids will love reading over and over again.

Johnny Skip 2 was a book that the Littles and I both enjoyed. Little 3 especially enjoyed it because it had a puppy and she’s obsessed with puppies.

Johnny Skip 2 is about a boy named Johnny (obviously) who can skip to different places. In this book he skips to Australia and is off on adventure. It teaches a bit about Australia such as Kangaroos and Aussie phrases. It has a very Dora The Explorer vibe but in book form and I think that’s what attracted the Littles to this book.

The illustrations were very colorful and the Littles were able to tell me what they thought was going to happen in the story before I read it to them. This helped us discuss a bit about the pictures.

Little One is currently learning to read so he helped read the story to his sisters and it is probably going to be a story that Little 3 makes him read over and over again because she really seemed to enjoy it the most.

Multicultural Children’s Book Day 2017 (1/27/18) is in its 5th year and was founded by Valarie Budayr from Jump Into A Book and Mia Wenjen from PragmaticMom.
