Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When she examines her life, Mountain Girl realizes her parents need to earn more money. Her father explains that they are really millionaires. He helps his daughter count up the monetary value of seeing the sky all day, feeling the wind, and smelling the coming rain. Three-time Caldecott Honoree Peter Parnall's dramatic watercolors illustrate what really matters.

Synopsis:

As her family attempts to calculate the value of the desert hills, the colors of blooming cactus, and the calls of eagles and great horned owls, a young girl discovers that her impoverished family is rich in things that matter in life, especially being outdoors and experiencing nature.
