Delight in nature with Little Muir!
This playful book invites children to ramble through rolling hills, climb friendly trees, and listen to bird song on the breeze as they follow along with famed conservationist John Muir’s lyrical prose and award-winning illustrator Susie Ghahremani’s irresistibly cheerful paintings.
The sun shines not on us, but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us.
With creatures to spot and small adventures to follow, Little Muir’s Song takes young readers on a journey of appreciation for the natural world.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The love of nature and the world around us radiates from every page. This is a sweet, little board book, which simply celebrates nature and invites young listeners (and older readers) to join in on the wonder of life. It's poetic and yet, not difficult to understand. The beauty beams from every page as nature turns into a sheer joy, which not only surrounds but flows through on an inner level. Nature lovers will enjoy this read and instantly understand the meaning behind the song. But then, even others will be drawn in and meet the verses on a personal level. It illustrations the connection between nature and people, while building respect and love. The illustrations are simple and match perfectly to the text. Little Muir wanders through forests and mountains with a contagious joy. There's a lovely modern touch, which draws in and makes it a delight to gaze at the scenes. I received a complimentary copy and enjoyed the book so much that I wanted to leave my honest thoughts.
