"Dreaming of Rocky Mountain National Park" tells the story of Orion the Owl, who does not want to go to sleep. But when he does doze off, he dreams that he can travel back in time. Orion goes on several journeys and sees dinosaurs, woolly mammoths, and Native Americans. Each of Orion’s adventures is based on real events that occurred in and around Rocky Mountain National Park.
Includes a "Did you know?" section at the end of the book that includes more details on the history of each place Orion visited.
"Featuring museum quality artwork on every page, Dreaming of Rocky Mountain National Park is a truly extraordinary, elegant, informative and entertaining picture book for young readers." - Midwest Book Review.
