This gift set includes On the Verde River – an 8.5″ x 11″ picture book in hardcover – and adorable plush cottontail rabbit from Wild Republic.
A perfect gift for anyone who loves animals or wants to learn more about Arizona and the Verde River!
Spend the day along the Verde River, where rabbits hop, owls swoop, and the stars shimmer in the night sky. Lyrical text and stunning watercolors highlight the vast array of animals and plants that can be found in the Verde Valley, home to one of Arizona’s last free-flowing river systems.
“On The Verde River offers the reader a gentle, day to night tour along Arizona’s Verde River. Phoebe Fox’s descriptive prose is paired nicely with the loose, playful, illustrations of the river and its many inhabitants by Jim Fox. This story offers a soothing, lyrical read-a-loud that will inspire readers to learn more about the river and the many animals that make the river come alive. The last several pages of On The Verde River are devoted to more detailed descriptions of the plants and wildlife that appear in the book. On The Verde River is the perfect book to introduce young readers to life along one of Arizona’s most wild and scenic habitats.” ~ Jim Paillot, Illustrator of the My Weird School series
