The Wonders That I Find

I am excited to announce the release of my first children’s book, The Wonders That I Find! Published by Rocky Mountain Books (Spring 2021), this book draws on my own experiences venturing into nature with my two young kids, and what I’ve observed as they’ve taken in the natural world through their own eyes.

About the book:

Written by Meghan J. Ward | Illustrated by Tay Odynski

It’s a beautiful summer day and Geneva’s parents have something special in mind: a hike to a scenic viewpoint in the mountains. So, they load up their car and drive to their chosen trail — a steep but rewarding hike called “Climb into the Sky.” With her teddy in tow, Geneva tries to keep up with her parents, who are eager to show her the view up high. A bird’s-eye view is what they promise, one that shows a winding river and trees down low, and rows of peaks that stretch into the distance. But, as she walks, she’s distracted by the wonders of nature that catch her eye and beckon her to take a closer look. What does she see along the trail that’s so fascinating? Does she ever reach the top?

The Wonders That I Find taps into a child’s curiosity about the world — something we all possess but often neglect as we grow older. The book asks us to slow down as we join Geneva on the trail, to appreciate the smaller things and savour the journey as much as the destination.

Vibrant, whimsical illustrations accompany this thoughtful poem, which will quickly become a favourite for both parents and children to read together.
