Editorial Reviews

"Immersive…The many fine details in the images alone are a commentary on [Bateman's] work ethic, as well as his respect and passion for his subjects…Bateman's conservationist philosophy comes across clearly…[and] is offered as a rallying cry for us all."

— Quill & Quire

"Great for sharing…The basic details and highly visual presentation of Robert Bateman: The Boy Who Painted Nature will introduce the youngest listeners to an inspiring story before they encounter more about this acclaimed naturalist…Highly Recommended."

— CM: Canadian Review of Materials
