It was nice out, so I went for a walk

I Went for a Walk is a brand new book full of colorful illustrations and a story that has your imagination flying all around the universe. The book was written and illustrated by Super Buddies, Shanti Wintergate and Gregory Attonito. Shanti and Greg, both musicians, created this beautiful book as they journeyed around the world. It was inspired by their travels and artistic backgrounds. I Went for a Walk is the first piece of art from these two fine individuals.

In Chapter 1, you'll find yourself exploring our fantastic planet and then ending up in outer space, meeting some colorful beings who are a lot like us. By the time you return back to Earth, you're pretty hungry. As you attempt to fill your tummy, you're whisked away to a planet called "Moove". You visit Moove in Chapter 2, where you'll meet all kinds of fun people who love to dance. Moove has you groovin' and appreciating music. That is how the people of Moove fill their tummies but you find that you're still hungry. Someone suggests heading over to "IZ". In Chapter 3, you visit the colorful planet of IZ where everyone is so peaceful and happy.

I Went for a Walk is a great book for you and your kids. It let's them explore their imaginations. When you're done reading it to them, have them sit down and draw a picture of a planet they'd like to visit. We love books that will encourage our little one to use her imagination and artistic talents.

This book is a must-have in your collection. We hope that Gregory and Shanti continue to create such magical pieces of art for our reading enjoyment!

There are a gazillion places to go for a walk. I love the park and the neighborhood and the woods, but I think my favorite place is the Botanical Garden.

My family, friends and I think the book is awesome. So colorful and lively, the story is incredible. The illustrations shine extra light on the story itself and together every page opens up surprise, laughter, imagination and beauty from beginning to end. Great Job Shanti and Greg!
