My controversial book here (from Trenton House Publishing)

“Sophia Discovers the Real Treasure: A Story of John Muir, Father of the National Parks” has Sophia taking a delightful trip back in time with prospector Big Red and his trusty mule, Jack, to learn about conservationist John Muir. Along the way she also learns how Native Americans were treated during Muir’s life and times. A fascinating book that will start necessary discussions!

If only one book about John Muir were to be selected for a discriminating picture book collection, it should beĀ “Sophia Discovers the Real Treasure.”

D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
“Sophia Discovers the Real Treasure” was a #1 Amazon Hot New Release!
A portion of a five-star review for children's author Curt Casetta's upcoming book, "Sophia discovers the Real Tresure, A Story of john Muir, Father of the National Parks." The reviewer calls the book a "Must read."
Paulette Reefer, Reedsy Discovery Reviews

Sophia Discovers the Real Treasure” will surely become a favorite with the young people in your life.

“An adorable and entertaining book!”

Children’s Author Brenda E. Cortez, Howl the Owl books

Maya Mae Robinson wanted a pet.
Her folks didn’t think she was quite ready yet.
“We don’t think you’re up to it,” mom and dad said.
“‘Cause even the plants that you water are dead.”
