  1. These look great! As a national parks fan, I am very excited for You Are Home. Evan Turk's art is so beautiful for all of his other books.

    Lita's books are always wonderful, and I am a huge fan of pretty much anything Sy Montgomery writes :).

    The mole book looks quite funny, and the Moth book intriguing.

    Thanks for all of the recs, Cathy!!

  2. Always love your lists. Thanks for sharing.
