“The 3 W Boys” by Raebeth Costolo is about three brothers, Wellington (age 10), Weston (age 7), and Wallace (age 5). It is a short story with six little stories within it. In one story they go fishing and one of them slips and falls into the large stream. Another story is about the brothers going to their Grandma and Grandpa’s house where they help their Grandpa plant some flowers and help their Grandma bake cookies.
It wasn’t the most exciting or adventurous book I ever read, but it was very realistic. It was nice that they could play outside so much in Colorado. The brothers were nice to each other and really stuck together.
I would recommend “The 3 W Boys” by Raebeth Costolo for most kids under the age of seven. There were lots of colorful pictures that helped make the book more exciting. The book was not very long, but there were a lot of words on some of the pages so it is not a super-easy reader.
