Description

Rivers wind through earth, cutting down and eroding the soil for millions of years, creating a cavity in the ground 277 miles long, 18 miles wide, and more than a mile deep known as the Grand Canyon. Home to an astonishing variety of plants and animals that have lived and evolved within its walls for millennia, the Grand Canyon is much more than just a hole in the ground. Follow a father and daughter as they make their way through the cavernous wonder, discovering life both present and past. Weave in and out of time as perfectly placed die cuts show you that a fossil today was a creature much long ago, perhaps in a completely different environment. Complete with a spectacular double gatefold, an intricate map and extensive back matter.

Professional reviews

"Qarie Marshall's straightforward narration and the production's accompanying music serve this informational children's title well. The audiobook is perfect for young listeners who gobble up scientific facts and is ideally paired with the detailed and captivating illustrations in the picture book. The narrative takes listeners on a journey through the Grand Canyon and its prominent ecosystems, highlighting the wildlife and fossilized evidence of past wildlife. Music and sound effects signal transitions back in time to describe the formation of the canyon and the plant and animal life that existed there millions of years ago. Informational asides in the picture book are read in a logical manner, adding background on the structure of the canyon and its geological processes. E.E.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
