Inspiration for Look Momma! Sun Valley Edition:
Valerie Maguire was inspired to write this, her first children’s book, after reading to a friend’s daughter and finding the books she was reading visually boring and devoid of any learning.
Look Momma, Sun Valley Edition follows a young child and mother through a day of exploring the magical town of Sun Valley, Idaho.
In addition to the darling watercolors, each page has a fun fact about what is discovered that day, so the book is both entertaining and educational. The original watercolor illustrations were created by Charlotte Long, Valerie’s talented Stepmom.
A Note from the Author:
The last page of the book includes icons of things that one might happen upon throughout a normal day. I encourage you to foster your little one’s curiosity by researching those “common” things and sharing a factoid about one new thing each time you read the book with your child.
