We are so excited to have the author team and illustrator of the book, Alice and Jack Hike the Grand Canyon, join us for a very special storytime event!
Amy Graves (daughter) and Pamela Schweitzer (mother) are a mother-daughter author team who come from a long line of Grand Canyon hikers. Alice and Jack Hike the Grand Canyon is a fictional picture book perfect for families with young children considering a challenging hike. Grand Canyon National Park has almost six (6) million visitors per year (second most visited national park) with less than one percentage (1%) going below the rim.
Alice and her brother, Jack, along with their Mom and Dad are hiking to Phantom Ranch, at the bottom of the Grand Canyon for spring break. Alice describes her and her brother Jack's journey of preparing for and eventually hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Alice needs to face her fear of heights since there are sections of the canyon that are steep. both kids learn about hiking etiquette and how to respond to minor mishaps. Alice and her brother forge a special respect and appreciation of this iconic natural wonder of the world and value the preparation involved in having a successful hiking trip.
