"Vulpes, the Red Fox", "Meph the Pet Skunk", "Summer of the Falcon"... My brother and I loved reading Jean George's books growing up. We even hollowed out a tree trunk in the woods after reading "My Side of the Mountain"! Later our children read these, along with many of the "new" ones (like "Julie"). Now I am sharing her books with my grandchildren. As a 4th grade teacher, I read "My Side of the Mountain" and other George books with my students into the 21st century! George's message of fascination and respect for nature is timeless. Thank you, Jean, for inspiring so many people of all ages to love and respect nature through your wonderful writing!
