In Susan Gal’s delightful young-concept book, a family travels up a mountain, over a bridge, and under a canopy of trees to reach their campsite in the great outdoors. A forest hike offers more opportunities to showcase words that describe spacial relationships and show young readers where they are in the world. Beside a lake! Next to a waterfall! On top of a mountain! Then after the sun slips behind the hills, they’ll snuggle alongside each other and dream sweet dreams inside their tent among the trees.Gal’s pictures capture all the beauty of the natural world. And she’s included a humorous cast of animal characters on a parallel journey of their own, so the art is full of funny things to spot.This is a gem of a story for parents and teachers to share with their happy campers.
SUSAN GAL began her illustration career as a poster and calendar artist. She then worked as an “actor with a pencil” for Disney Animation before returning to her native California to create fun and whimsical illustrations. You can read more… More about Susan Gal
