Little Muir's Night: John Muir

I'm happy to recommend Little Muir's Night, illustrated by Susie Ghahremani, for your readertotz. In John Muir's words, if the world is seen as a dewdrop, the universe can be perceived "as an infinite storm of beauty." 

As the sun sets, the owl draws in the night. First readers will enjoy spotting the creatures of Yosemite National Park from the bats to the bear. The work, along with the companion, Little Muir's Song, will support the park itself. 

As John said, "Let children walk with nature." In our isolation during Covid 19, may you and yours find time to do so.
