Lyrical text and stunning photographs invite readers to explore the transformative power of nature all around us!

Great for grades preK-3. Info in the back of the book explains more about the science for older grades.

“Act 250, Vermont’s landmark land use regulation law, is nearly universally praised for its role in protecting Vermont’s character and natural beauty…. In the past, Act 250 has been criticized by those who feel the permit process has become too time-consuming.… The explanations and analyses contained [in the Vermont Act 250 Handbook] will grease the regulatory wheels.” – From the forward by Doug Costle, Former Administrator, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
