Breathtaking, stunning, awe-inspiring these are just a few of the words which can be used to describe the photographs in Cameron's debut children's book.
Elegantly written by Eileen Cameron, Canyon is an especially beautiful picture book for young beginning readers ... Very highly recommended for both school and community library picture book collections.

We don't tend to think of geology and poetry in the same breath, but "Canyon" is a book which might make us change our minds.
Breathtaking, stunning, awe-inspiring -- these are just a few of the words which can be used to describe the photographs in Cameron's debut children's book.
Breathtaking, full-page photographs by Michael Collier are enhanced by the poetic narrative on every other page in this beautiful look at this amazing landform. The story of a canyon's creation is revealed, from the beginning of the water's journey down the mountains as it moves in trickles, aided by rain and storms. The cascading water crashes and carves its way downward, encouraged on its way by wind and gravity, all the while sculpting and shaping. The thirteen striking photos taken along the Colorado River are clearly identified and accompanied by a regional map that shows details of the river and canyons. This book is a visual treat and Cameron's narrative is the icing on the cake. This is a good addition to any home or primary classroom library. 2002, Mikaya Press,

K-Gr 5-Poetic text and stunning color photographs combine to form a lyrical and visual essay on water's journey from the sky, down the mountains, in the rivers, and finally forming a canyon. The first spread sets the majestic tone with the words "Water falls softly in cold snow crystals onto the mountaintop" and a breathtaking view of La Plata Mountains. (The geographic landmarks are identified at the end of the book.) The photographic composition of other spreads each artistically depicts one eloquent word-"sculpts," "forms," "shapes." This is a title for reading aloud to inspire an appreciation for the grandeur of nature.-Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
