Winslow and Rosie have been building an impressive collection of natural wonders, and now it's nearly complete. With just enough space left for one final piece, the girls set off into the forest to find something extraordinary. Their journey takes them far — along the creek, across the valley, through the spruce grove and up the mountain. And while they find many extraordinary things, nothing is just the right extraordinary thing.
When the girls find a deep, dark cave, they decide to venture farther than ever before. Surely, a mysterious cave must hold something extraordinary... Bestselling creator Alice Feagan's distinct cut-paper collage artwork brings this fun quest story to life and packs it with learning opportunities. From the detailed depictions of the girls' gear to the many portrayals of their extraordinary finds (a gemstone, dinosaur fossils, a rare woodpecker's feather), there are numerous STEM curriculum applications here. Nature lovers and collectors of all kinds will love this high-adventure quest story starring two brave and clever girls.
"The narrative sends a valuable message about the process of discovery... when the girls reflect on how much they learned through trial and error. Moreover, a happy ending is assured when a nest of baby birds hatches right outside their window, gently reminding readers to appreciate the good things that can happen right in front of their eyes. The adventure-filled plot and appealing illustrations will make this cheerful book a surefire hit at story hours." — Allison Tran, School Library Journal
