When I saw the cover reveal for To Find Treasure in the Mountains (Yosemite Conservancy, written by Francine Rockey, ill. by Kendra Binney), it spoke to my heart. I love exploring the mountains and discovering all the treasures they hold! This is the kind of book I would have loved as a kid, or as an adult, had in my classroom and read to my son. It’s all about adventure and discovery.
What do you need to find treasure in the mountains? Some sturdy shoes, a sense of adventure, and remembering which way is away and which way is home. No pirate map or magic wand required!
In this charming, beautifully-illustrated and poignantly-written debut picture book, three diverse children follow a trail and discover some of the mountain’s most precious treasures. Detailed artwork reveals discoveries of birds, mammals, insects, rocks, streams, plants, and more. The trio returns home, where we see how their treasured experience will always stay with them through storytelling and memories.
To Find Treasure in the Mountains is a perfect book for families who enjoy exploring the outdoors. Available August 16, 2022.
