Book Reviews!

"Lori Taylor’s comically illustrated books, spattered with facts and fun activities, sow an early love for nature and all its mystery and wonder. These books inspire creativity and will help cultivate the
scientists of tomorrow!"
Lisa Rivard, Ph.D., Language Arts Consultant,
Macomb Intermediate School District,
MRA President


"I've read the Beaver Island and the Sleeping Bear Dunes books. They are terrific. I love all the pictures and the interactive nature of your work!! I like the way you make important environmental issues exciting opportunities for kids to get involved and make a difference. Holly and her friends are wonderful! Adults will be inspired by your books, too! What a great way to learn about these parks we all share!!

Lori Taylor's presentation was riveting for children and adults alike. Her stories about her adventures at Michigan State Parks grabbed the attention of children who have never visited a State Park, and her visuals completely captivated even the most restless children in the room. She will be getting an repeat invitation!

"The personal contact with you and your enthusiasm will have a great impact in promoting the love of reading (an drawing, science, adventure, Michigan, etc.) for children."
Deborah E. Becraft, Principal

"I love how descriptive this book is. Holly has a kind of a weird family. I recommend this book to other kids."

"My 5 year old laughed himself silly. I want every book written by this author!"
Mom (of five-year-old), Pinckney, MI


"We're doing a whole nature thing as we read the book. We have a field trip planned to visit a wild-land conservancy in a couple of weeks and the kids are more excited now that they have been going on "adventures" with Holly."
D. Harden, 3rd Grade Teacher,
