This book is the best children's book about Great Salt Lake ever written. This group of inquisitive kids brought me out of the mud and salt and I'm proud I could help facilitate learning about our important ecosystem.
Thank you for writing such a fabulous book that is so utterly perfect for my classroom.

GREAT SALT LAKE
6th Grade Teacher,
Dr. Bonnie K. Baxter and Jaimi Butler have worked on lake research and education for a combined forty years. They built the Great Salt Lake Institute at Westminster College where they do research with undergraduate students, explore the lake with teachers, and connect people to our important salty neighbor. Their infectious enthusiasm attracted Arly Landry to the Institute team her senior year, and the lake soon became her muse. There are many ways to capture the essence of this desert lake; and with this book, we want to share the joy of exploring our living laboratory.
