Rusty Goes to Water World: Book Review & Giveaway!

Once again, a bit forgotten by the townspeople yet not by the children. Rusty saves the day again at the water park when things go array. The illustrations were charming. I enjoyed Rusty’s second book more than the first one. The vocabulary is advanced, which is good for older elementary school. It was a bit too long for my hyperactive 6-year-old daughter, but I’m sure a child with the love of fire engine trucks will enjoy this series.
