What Readers' Reviews are Saying

"As an Early Childhood Educator, I also appreciate that over and above recounting of a story- the book also creates opportunity to "engage" the reader in recollecting childhood memories of their own, through words and drawings that can be added in the form of a reflective journal entry at the end of the story"

"AMAZING BOOK!!! I think that The Adventures of Kaboose the Rocky Mountain Bear is a great children’s book because it has its own unique way of tying in history and culture of the Rocky Mountains as well, for its touch on nature. It will give kids a new approach to learning about history and nature. I can’t wait for more books in this series!!!"
