Publisher Summary

Introduce your baby to the fascinating adventures of famous naturalist John Muir. John Muir was a Scottish-born American naturalist, author who became known as “Father of the National Parks.” Millions have read his letters, essays, and books of his adventures in nature, and his advocacy was essential in helping to preserve many beautiful parts of the West—especially Yosemite National Park. Kate Coombs’ enchanting poem and Seth Lucas’ adorable illustrations share Muir’s love of the Sierras, the Sequoias and Redwoods, and the birds and animals of the West with the next generation of little nature-lovers, fostering a life-long appreciation of the world around them. Kate Coombs has written several books for children, including the award winning poetry collection Water Sings Blue and most recently Goodnight Mr. Darcy. A former teacher of every grade from kindergarten through college, Kate makes her home in Utah. Seth Lucas is an illustrator and designer with a BFA in graphic design. He is the co-creator of Ello There Outdoors selling prints and accessories supporting the National Parks and outdoors. He lives in Indianapolis, Indiana, with his wife and daughter.
