Explore nature with Little Muir!

Delight in nature with Little Muir!

This playful book invites children to ramble through rolling hills, climb friendly trees, and listen to bird song on the breeze as they follow along with famed conservationist John Muir’s lyrical prose and award-winning illustrator Susie Ghahremani’s irresistibly cheerful paintings.


Little Muir’s Song released August 13, 2019 to advance acclaim:

  • “A gentle introduction to the natural world and the words of John Muir. . . . The reverence for the Earth comes through with each page turn. With round, friendly lines reminiscent of Wanda Gág’s work, the jewel-toned landscapes evoke the vistas of Yosemite National Park, which Muir helped preserve. . . . It is a lovely poetic meditation on the natural world..” – Kirkus
