To counter what best-selling author Richard Louv calls "Nature Deficit Disorder," this beautiful children's book follows a family's expeditions in the Alaska wilderness where a boy's imagination inspires him to approach challenges with a sense of adventure and fun. A moose doesn't mind the mud, a coyote doesn't get lost, and a ptarmigan doesn't get cold, so why should he?
Caribou, beluga whales, and mountain goats are just a few of the animals found in the Alaska wilderness that figure into this charming story where a boy’s imagination inspires him to approach challenges with a sense of adventure and fun. This beautiful children’s book follows a family’s expeditions in Alaska. Each page brings a new wilderness setting, and the boy overcomes obstacles by imagining himself as iconic Alaskan animals. Colorful, eye-catching cut-paper artwork illustrates each scene and captures the beauty of Alaska’s seasons and wildlife.
