Great Children’s Book- Charley and the Yellowstone Sprites

We love Montana!

It is so beautiful and there are so many great things to do there, Landon especially loves the fly fishing. And since we have family that lives in West Yellowstone, we consider ourselves extremely lucky and try to go whenever we can.

We took Brynlee there last summer and here we are at her first trip to Yellowstone and to see Old Faithful, which is amazing by the way.

I am perfectly aware that Brynlee will never remember her first trip to Yellowstone, but I do have about a thousand pictures and I bought this book while we were there in hopes that she would still feel connected to it and excited when we go back.

And so, you can imagine my excitement to win Going Home to Roost’s giveaway a couple of weeks ago for Amy Hevron’s book Charley and the Yellowstone Sprites. Read about the Kickstarter campaign that brought this book to life here.

And this book did not disappoint, it is absolutely beautiful, Amy’s illustrations are perfectly whimsical and Brynlee was so excited to see it when I pulled it from the packaging.

Which was adorable by the way.

I also received some art prints, post cards and stickers all of which are available in Amy’s shop and I cannot wait to use them. Of course Brynlee loved the stickers and I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to send those gorgeous post cards, instead I’m thinking they need to be framed too.

Everything about this book is so well done and I’m so excited and grateful to add it to Brynlee’s library.

And just look how cute Charley is with his little sprite friends!

I know Brynlee and I will have a lot of fun reading about Charley and the Yellowstone Sprites adventures through Yellowstone and reliving our time there.

And when we go back (hopefully soon) she will be able to connect the places we visit with the book and that will make it even more magical.

And maybe, just maybe, we might even see Charley…
