  • When Finn and her dog Skeeter set out on a hike to cure their restless feet, they literally take a step into nature. A big gooey step...right into scat (also known as poop). And just like the animal it comes from, scat comes in all shapes and sizes. Scat, along with foot or paw tracks, can tell a lot about the creature who produced it.

    As Finn's hike takes her further into the woods, she happens along some scat and tracks from a variety of woodland creatures.

    Pairing punchy rhyme with science writing, Lisa Morlock has created the perfect nature guide, providing detailed descriptions of the prints, diets, and behaviors of the animals that Finn and Skeeter encounter along their hike.

    The Creation. A Letter. By Donald Jordan

    It's been a while since I've had any books to review, but I recently finished this book and wanted to put up the review for it!

    First I want to show you where you can buy this lovely book. Click HERE to purchase.
    Lately, I'm all about B&N. I'm banning Amazon lately. ~long story LOL.

    Overview

    The realistic, yet compassionate view of life that Donald Jordan passes on to his grandchildren in The Creation: A Letter encourages all of us to share our beliefs and faith with our offspring and serves as a simple model of how to do so. Coupled with short, illustrative anecdotes, Jordan’s encouragement to be kind, responsible and honest, to express gratitude and to forgive, and most of all to love provides genuine and humble guidance for any child or grandchild.

    Mr. Jordan does a fabulous job with this quick little read. Encouragement. A great read for anyone young (over 14) or old. Inspiring. Makes the reader want to write their own story for generations to come.


    I really enjoyed this book. Well worth the read!
