"Joey Goes to the Petrified Forest" Childrens Book

Last year we met Joey, the little puppy with big dreams.

During spring break, Joey decides to take a vacation away from Silverton to explore the mysterious "Petrified Forest."

While there, he meets a mysterious Raven - and it's this Raven who will show Joey the wonders of the park, and the region, throughout time!

"Joey Visits the Petrified Forest" is aimed for young readers and their families. With colorful illustrations and complex concepts simplified, it's a great read for those with big imaginations and natural curiosity. 

Kids who read this book will learn about Petrified Forest National Park throughout history, stewardship, and fun-facts that will make their visit to the park more indepth and exciting!
