A well-written and beautifully illustrated new book “Grand Canyon” will introduce young readers to this amazing natural wonder. The reader follows a father and his daughter as they hike the canyon. Each page offers information about rocks, animal life, vegetation, and the history of this vast “hole in the ground.”
Author-illustrator Jason Chin makes the story of the canyon come alive with his full-color, large illustrations. From diagrams explaining the different rock layers to detailed drawings of trees, animals, and birds, readers interested in nature will enjoy the journey.
The author explains that “each illustration in the book depicts a location along specific trails.” If the readers visit the Grand Canyon, they will be able to find the exact spots pictured in the book.
