  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing Limited

A tender story celebrating the natural world and our place within it, featuring lyrical verse and bold, tactile paper-collage illustrations.

A tender and lyrical story celebrating the natural world and our place within it, Wild Trails to the Sea follows a coastal family as seasons change and children grow. With a hopeful refrain, a parent shares their dreams for their young ones, urging them to pay attention to every bit of magic the world has to offer, from watching a mayflower bloom to skipping pebbles on an icy pond, encouraging a lifelong love of natural spaces.

Told in gentle free-verse with luminous, tactile illustrations, this nostalgic story celebrates raising children in the great outdoors and will leave them enchanted with the lemon-burst of spruce tips, the steam of saltwater bonfires, and white rocks as vast as the moon.

The debut children’s picture book by celebrated Halifax-based editor and co-author of Amazing Atlantic Canadian Women and York-based, Nova Scotia—born paper-collage artist Elena Skoreyko Wagner, Wild Trails to the Sea is a love letter to the earth, the sky, and the sea—and to their future stewards.
