This would be a great book for science and talking about different landforms and important features. It is very informational about the Grand Canyon but is still interesting for children, and anyone, to read.
This is an informational but enticing book about the Grand Canyon. It tells about the different parts of the canyon, and the life that fills its walls. It is very descriptive in talking about the features of the canyon. It shows illustration of a child and their father walking through the canyon, and also some diagrams and informational figures mixed in.

#LitsySpringBreak Day 30: Back in 2012, almost ten years ago now, we did this wonderful tour at #GrandCanyon. Great times. I am glad to revisit these photos.
This book was an informative Caldecott Honor winner with beautiful illustrations that really help convey the information. The illustrations are detailed and display the Grand Canyon beautifully.
I would use this book in my future classroom because it expands on a beautiful scope of nature that children have probably heard of, but don't know about.
“...but it's much more than just a big hole in the ground.“

A segway into talking about nature
Grand Canyon is a nonfiction book that talks about different facts about the grand canyon. The book gives appropriate information about the Grand Canyon complimented with beautiful pictures.
“These animals are living on the rock layer called the Bright Angel Shale, which formed more than 200 million years after the Grand Canyon Supergroup.”
The bright and colorful illustrations also include maps and diagrams making the book more enjoyable and informational!
This non fiction book did an excellent job portraying the beauty of the Grand Canyon. It discusses the wildlife and plant life there and how that adds to the environment. It also is a Caldecott medal book.
“It is 277 miles long, as much as 18 miles wide, and more than a mile deep, but it‘s much more than just a big hole in the ground.”
I think this book would be good for children in order to see more about one of the national parks in our country.
Grand Canyon was written by Jason Chin and published in 2017. The book talks about the Grand Canyon and all the features that come with it. This text is very informative with good illustrations to represent the different aspects of the National Park. I think children would find it fascinating to see all the parts incorporated.
Grand Canyon, written and illustrated by Jason Chin, is a NF book that takes you on a beautiful journey through the Grand Canyon. It describes the beauty of the Grand Canyon rather than just saying that it's a hole in the ground. It describes the plants and animals that live there. This book is a Caldecott Medalist and would be the perfect book for a RA. #UCFLAE3414F19
“the greatest canyon on earth...“
my favorite thing about the book is how some pages have a border of animals and their names around the illustrations. it made it fun to look at and educational
I loved this book mostly because of the way they included images, maps, diagrams, illustrations. I love the contrast of the illustrations of the family to the more “science like“ images and maps
With a 9-foot wingspan, and weighing as much as 23 pounds, the condor is the largest land bird in North America.
The illustrations were beautiful and very detailed. I also loved the pull out pages and the cuts in the pages to see onto the next page, very fun and creative!
I enjoyed this book about the grand canyon. It contains facts about the grand canyon's rock layers, how it was created, animals/insects/reptiles that live there, fossils, rivers, height, etc. At the end of the book, there are facts about human history of grand canyon, ecology, rock structures and the grand mystery still unsolved.
“Fossils that tell us about life here 270 million years ago”
I enjoyed the water color illustrations of the Grand Canyon.
I enjoyed reading this book and finding out more about the depths of the Grand Canyon!
“Grand Canyon is one of the largest canyons in the world. It is 277 miles long, as much as 18 miles wide, and more than a mile deep, but it's much more than a big hole in the ground.“
I liked how the illustrator used such contrasting colors for us to see a true difference in the night and day scenes. His illustrations are also very detailed and appealing to look at.
I liked this book! You can really learn a lot of new information about the Grand Canyon and its characteristics after reading it. There are so many pictures of the Grand Canyon itself, along with the wildlife that lives there. I enjoyed reading this book and I think it can be interactive for children.
“Grand Canyon is one of the largest canyons in the world. It is 277 miles long as much as 18 miles wide and more than a mile deep.“
I really liked his use of colors to show the time of day. I think this is a great tool to teach about the Grand Canyon in a way that makes children forget that they're learning because the illustrations are so good.
Grand Canyon by Jason Chin was on of the 2018 Caldecott honor winners. This is a really beautifully illustrated educational book. You learn so much about the Grand Canyon with pictures that make you want to keep reading. His use of darks hues of blues bring the feeling of early morning alive in the beginning of the book and then brings in brighter colors to illuminate early dawn.
“Eventually every creek in canyon flows into the largest stream of all...”
The artwork is amazing and really captures all the details that exist on the actual Grand Canyon.
