Teacher, Hope Christian Academy by: A. Gillette


As a teacher, I am grateful to use this amazing book in my class! My students loved learning about the Grand Canyon from precious Kristi Kay’s point of view, and they were excited to participate in the interactive aspects of the book; they did not want to put it down! I appreciate how it complements the Arizona objectives of our curriculum and will certainly use the Discovery series in my classes for years to come! Thanks Marie von Minden for authoring a book that is engaging, educational, and so much fun!

Exceptional  Photography and Writing by: Cindy Bakerman


This delightful, interactive, informational book will not disappoint. The impressive photography, vibrant graphics and incredible wildlife will entertain not only children, but their parents as well. Follow Kristi Kay’s photographic adventures as she explores the majestic Grand Canyon with her friends Alex, the California Condor, and Gerri, the Abert’s Squirrel. The book is a must for families visiting and learning about the Grand Canyon and its inhabitants. As a National Park’s and Junior Ranger enthusiast, I am anticipating reading the author’s next book on Yellowstone.




This Children’s Book is Grand!  by: E. Grabarek


The photography in this book is just spectacular. The links and enhanced futures make it fun to explore the various aspects of the Grand Canyon; the animals, anthropology and more. Kristi Kay is an enduring dog that leads children along on her adventures with Gerri, an Abert’s squirrel and Alex, a California condor. Hopefully they help children to value why we need to protect such beautiful places as the Grand Canyon and endangered animals like the condor. The links and enhanced futures will help children who want to learn even more!




A Great Addition by: Mr. Naturally


A must have experience for young people. With its cute, intelligent looking dog, and a bird that looks like it was conceived by Dr. Seuss, it puts us into an animal society - so beautifully conceived in its civility, generosity, and interest and care for the world -  that it is reminiscent of books like Winnie the Pooh. These elements, set in the grandeur of the Grand Canyon, beautifully brought out by magnificent photographs and videos, make it a compelling book from both parent’s and teacher’s point of view.


I feel that it, and others like it, will become a basic part of the newly possible learning experience for young people. In the end it is much more that a tour guide. I wish there were more such stories available.




Beautiful Book, Amazing Photography, Cute Puppy, Educational by: Adrian Horn


What more could you ask for? As a native Arizonan teaching my kids about the rich culture of our state is important. Our state has been influenced by so many different cultures and each has left a unique mark. This book focuses on the Grand Canyon and shares the amazing adventures of this little pup. My youngest daughter (5) loved it for the puppy of course. My son (11) loved it for the Native American history. My oldest daughter (14) loved the photography.


Beautiful book.
