2017 Nomination (not yet selected):With detailed and beautiful illustrations and and equally carefully constructed text, we are taken on a Grand Canyon journey through time, explaining how the canyon was formed, the changing flora and fauna, the differing climates in the canyon and the formation of its varying rock layers. Lots to pour over here, this book will continue to inform the more you read it and study the information in every illustration. End notes add to the enjoyment of the book. Seven to Ten. -Edie Ching.
