Sweet Cheeks and Savings Review:

Ally and I loved this book!  Cree is a little girl that Ally related to immediately.  They connected through their love for stuffed animals.  Cree's chameleon, Scooter goes along with her on her adventure in her dreams. Many times Allyson has woke in the morning to tell me about her dream with her fox, Jetta.

They travel North to British Columbia, Canada!  Along the way Scooter teaches Cree a few things about Canada.  She even learns a little French along the way!  When they meet Mr. Todd while skiing was Ally's favorite part.  Of course Mom's favorite part was when she got a charm for her bracelet!
