Bryce Canyon National Park Impressons

photography by James Randklev, forward by Greer Chesher

Although it may not look it, Bryce Canyon is a world in motion. Daily, from seemingly immutable cliffs, rocks tumble, ancient and immovable hoodoos shed skin, and high-angled slopes elbow downhill. Underfoot, the very soil ripples as unseen microorganisms tunnel gossamer fingers. The silent forest bustles as mule deer, prairie dogs, coyotes, hawks, and snakes partner in life's dynamic and complex dance. Photographer James Randklev beautifully captures the timelessness of this Utah treasure.
80 pages - 8.1 x 9.2 inches

This book is absolutely beautiful and if you've been to Bryce will bring back fond memories. If you're never been there, you will make it a destination. Just beautiful!!!!

Lost In The Woods Book and Stuffed Deer Combo

Lost in the Woods
A Mom's Choice Award Winner


"The little book is a chunk of pure magic ..."

The Detroit News

Lost in the Woods, a children's book by Carl R. Sams II and Jean Stoick,
weaves a delightful tale with a message: fawns found alone in the woods are rarely lost or abandoned.

In Lost in the Woods, children learn that newborn fawns spend their first weeks without mom because her scent will attract predators to her babe.
She instinctively knows to stay only briefly to nurse and care for her fawn. He will travel with her when he is older and stronger.

Special Feature
A fun page in the back of the Lost in the Woodsfeatures wildlife "friends" that your child can go back through the book and locate.

9.75" X 9.25", 48 Full Color Pages
