Yes, Let’s by Galen Goodwin Longstreth is a story about a family day in the woods, from sun-up to sun-down. The rhyming text takes the reader through waking up, packing gear, riding there, hiking, playing, swimming, eating, and eventually sleepily returning home. Every sentence begins with “Let’s,” inviting the reader to join in the fun. The understated verse conjures up visual images. The illustrator shows a family that mostly enjoys each other, at least most of the time. There is lot’s of humor in the illustrations, as well as details hinting at the personalities of each family member.
