Is the Garden of the Gods a school of pink and orange land sharks? Or a bed of sedimentary rock that tilted as Pikes Peak uplifted? Colorado is a beautiful and amazing place. Emmaline and Oliver have some imaginative ideas about the state’s natural wonders. Their parents have some pretty wild theories of their own. Follow their exciting adventure through this Rocky Mountain paradise and continue learning with four pages of educator resources. Written and illustrated by a certified teacher and her own geologist father, this book is a playful lesson in earth science.

This copy is signed by the author/illlustrator, Catching Summer shopkeeper, Anastasia Kierst.
If you'd like the autograph personalized, please make note of the name you'd like.

Shipping policies

We refund shipping overages. Sometimes when you buy multiple items on Etsy the actual cost of shipping is less than the calculated cost. When this happens we'll be sure to refund the difference! Orders ship standard USPS rate unless you choose otherwise.

Because we care deeply about the environment, we embrace the REUSE, REDUCE, RECYCLE philosophy - especially when it comes to shipping materials. We reuse packing material whenever possible, so please don't be startled if your Etsy order arrives in a pre-used (but still clean and protective) Amazon box or bubble envelope. Reusing packaging is the ultimate form of recycling. It's even more eco-friendly than buying packaging made from recycled paper or plastic because it cuts out the carbon footprint of the recycling process as well as the need to ship the newly recycled shipping products. What materials can you reuse in your daily life? Spread the word!
