This is a book I must have picked up a hundred times before and have never gave a solid read. I really like this book. Unexpectedly, it was a great book on geography. It has an environmental twist, of course, but the whole point of the book was Armadillo figuring out where he fit in the world. ( )

I like this storu of an armadillo who wants to travel and see the world.
The story is a simple lesson in Texas geography and is fun and interesting to read. It would be a good book to read to 2 to 7-year old kids. ( )
