With eleven brilliant color photos of wildlife, geysers, and scenery, this board book is a great way to show the marvels of Yellowstone National Park to very young children. Each photo is paired with a delightful rhyming verse that educationally describes a feature of the photo's subject, from "stinky" thermal springs to "knobby-kneed" moose. Each image was taken in Yellowstone by noted photographer Christopher Cauble; the rhymes were written by Christopher and his wife, Sarah; and the book was designed by Sarah. They created the book to share the wonders of Yellowstone with their young daughter. Yellowstone: A National Park Primer is a wonderful introduction to Yellowstone and to nature for pre-school, beginning readers. Sample rhymes: If you patiently wait and the time is just right, Old Faithful erupts to a towering height. Find moose in marshy meadows or beneath the shade of trees. They wade through the water with long legs and knobby knees.
About the Author
When their daughter was born, Sarah and Christopher Cauble wanted to introduce her to the wonderland located just south of their hometown of Livingston, Montana. With Christopher's decade of photographing Yellowstone, Sarah's design skills, and their daughter's curiosity, Yellowstone: A National Park Primer was created to educate and entertain. Sarah and Christopher have worked together on several Yellowstone books, including the coffee-table book, Yellowstone: A Land of Wild and Wonder, and the educational children's book, What I Saw in Yellowstone, both best-selling Yellowstone titles. They have also designed and photographed books about Montana and other national parks.
