Praise for “Jacob”


“Some nature books for children are so good for you they’re no fun to read. Others are fun, but don’t teach anything. Jacob Swift is one of those rare books that manages to tell a compelling story while simultaneously infusing its young reader with a wealth of information about the natural world. Illustrated with Rob Palmer’s phenomenal photographs of swift foxes and their Great Plains landscape, this is a book both kids and adults will be happy to read over and over. Because of that, Jacob Swift will both entertain and educate many people about an important place very few are aware of: The Great Plains of North America.
