Saturday Stortime: To Find Treasure in the Mountains by Francine Rockey


Join us for a special Saturday storytime with Bend author Francine Rockey for her book, To Find Treasure in the Mountains! This event is free, and the author will be signing books after the reading.

With sturdy shoes and a sense of adventure, three young children hike through the sparkling woods to find treasure in the mountains. 

No pirate’s map or magic wand required! Outside, there is always something wonderful just around the bend.

Is that treasure hidden in a hollow old tree trunk? Does treasure gleam near the lizard with the bright blue belly? Can the feathery flight of a great gray owl hint at treasure? 

Yes, yes, and yes! Because all steps into the wild lead to nature’s treasures. This lovely picture book highlights discoveries and connections that come from sharing time outdoors together.

"This picture book is a splendid and dazzlingly illustrated love letter to the outdoors." --Shelf Awareness, Starred Review
