A Cross-Country Family Adventure

Our family loves taking cross-country adventures and took a similar trek like the one Putter and his family took across the United States. Putter is the family dog, an Airedale terrier to be exact, and he tells the story of his family’s move from Boston to Seattle.

As the family travels through the country, Putter shares his first-time experiencing hotels, seeing mountains, and eating a burger. He tells of the beautiful countryside and visiting old friends in Chicago. And, like most dogs, Putter shares the joy of riding in the car with the window down and having the wind in his face.

With a simple story and beautiful watercolor illustrations, even the youngest child can learn about our great country by traveling with Putter and his family. This book may even inspire your family to take a summer road- trip!
