Monument to Treasure ePub

This is an unusual book. I expected a picture book and, with the wonderful illustrations by Stuart Funk, it is a lovely picture book.But, it's not a traditional read-aloud kind a picture book.Instead, it is full of history, points of interest, and cultural folk tales of the Cahuilla Indians.It includes information on plants, animals, geology and basket weaving. All of these facts are tied together because they are part of the Santa Rosa and Mount San Jacinto Mountains National Monument.I appreciate the book but I am not quite sure how I will present it to my library patrons.It's a story but it's also a resource for students or young travelers who would like to know more about the Monument and its unique features.It is stronger as a resource than as a story and I would recommend it for both public and school library shelves.
