Industry Reviews

A Day on the Mountain is a great nature activities and environmental studies resource for students in grades K-4. - Midwest Book Review This story is told in rhyme, which makes it fun to read aloud. A reference section at the end gives more details about mountain ecosystems. - NSTA Recommends This is a great little book for the classroom or individual child's library. It would be a great gift to give to a child who is about to visit the mountains for the first time. - Dan Blankenship, The Ozarks
