Wild Thing artwork and Little Muir’s Song!

Little Muir’s Song is officially out! This picture board book pairs the brilliant words of John Muir with my illustrations! Pick up a signed copy from my shop, or from your favorite bookseller! If you’re in the San Diego area, join me at my book launch this Saturday 10am at ROVE for a discussion of the artwork I made for this book, personalized copies, a raffle to benefit Yosemite Conservancy, s’mores and coloring sheets, and more!

If you pre-ordered Little Muir’s Song, please consider leaving a 5-star review on Amazon or Goodreads — that’s one of the greatest ways to support a new book!

Little Muir's Song by John Muir, Illustrated by Susie Ghahremani, published by Yosemite Conservancy

“Little Muir’s Song illustrates the connection between nature and people, while building respect and love. The illustrations are simple and match perfectly to the text. Little Muir wanders through forests and mountains with a contagious joy.” –Bookworm For Kids

I was also honored to be profiled by Voice of San Diego’s Julia Dixon Evans in this week’s Culture Report. Read all about it here:

RSVP.
