"With its rhythmic text and classic fairy-tale style, The Legend of the Fairy Stones cleverly integrates fantastical folklore in a collage-style montage of amazing artwork from the public domain. Alongside its elements of fantasy and whimsy, The Legend of the Fairy Stones remains grounded in educational content with back matter that focuses sharply on STEAM and Common Core Standards, making it an ideal and recommended addition to both community and elementary school library collections."
―Midwest Book Review (Gale/Cengage Learning)
"Anyone who loves nature will love the Bible Adventure Book of Scavenger Hunts. Groups large and small will take away ideas for scavenger hunts of all kinds. The activities in this book inspire explorers of all ages to get outside and appreciate the wonders of the great outdoors."
—Kim Childress, Book Reviewer, Girls' Life Magazine
"The descriptions of these natural wonders include statistics about their size, annual visitors, and native species. Influences to the environment along with conservation efforts are also covered. The narratives are factual but figurative in their descriptions ('Solid waterfalls spill like thick, white icing')."

Midst midnight mist of long ago...
Fairies flitted, glittered aglow. Carefree with glee in glens and glades, they played 'til dawn when moonbeams fade. Entranced they danced in deep delight, in scattered light of morning's might. As sunrays struck the noontime hour, they lolled in beds of fragrant flower.
