Any recommendations are much appreciated. I am looking for adventure themed PBs.

Thank you!

What a good question, Sharon!

By contemporary standards, it may be more of a picture storybook (?), but how about The Tales of Winnie-the-Pooh?

I'm also a fan of Faith Ringgold's Aunt Harriet's Underground Railroad in the Sky (children fly with Harriet Tubman, reliving her journey on the Underground Railroad; as I teacher, I used this to introduce my tenth graders to the story of Moses).

I'm eager to hear what others say because just coming up with two examples was challenging for me!!

Edited to add another:  The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd  :bunny2

I love Runaway Bunny too!

But for real adventures: Curious George. For something more contemp. Salina's Penguin books. Both these characters have a great sense of joy when they explore.

For older kids, Tin-Tin.

I second the Curious George books, and then there's The Berstein Bears.
