Shirley Craighead is from Moose, Wyoming, so she definitely knows what it's like to grow up next to one of the country's most unique natural landscapes. This book is based on one of the works of her late husband, Dr. Frank Craighead. His book, titled For Everything there is a Season, was inspired by the detailed journaling of his excursions into the park as they hiked, fished, explored, and recorded the movements of the flora and fauna of Yellowstone. In part as a memory to him, she turned that work into something for kids to enjoy as well. Your avid little reader will love Bugling Elk and Sleeping Grizzlies by Shirly Craighead!
