Soldiers Grove Library
Schmidt’s newest children’s book, Finnegan’s Springtime Guide, once again features her rat-terrier-mix buddy Finnegan as narrator. He invites the children on a search for spring and helps them discover bluebells, morels, spring beauties, turkey vultures, sandhill cranes, and more. Finn encourages the children to use their senses—look for bloodroots, smell skunk cabbage, and listen for spring peepers. The book includes a “Now You Know” section of interesting facts about each discovery, a glossary, and a section where children can write their own field notes.Finnegan’s Springtime Guide is a full-color book with photographs taken locally by the author in the Kickapoo Valley Reserve. “It’s an interactive book,” says Schmidt, “that inspires children to get outside and explore nature.”
Hope to see you there!
