Holiday shopping: For the kids

Season’s greetings from the Mono Lake Committee! What better way to treat the young ones in your life this holiday season than with a gift from the Committee’s online store? Our 2014 fall catalog offers several items for kids that are educational, fun, and help save Mono Lake:

–    A Partridge in a Pear Tree by Charley Harper is a playful rendition of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” and contains beautiful pastel sketches, humorous text, and a message of the value of giving.
–    Angry Birds: 50 True Stories of the Fed Up, Feathered, and Furious by Mel White reveals astonishing stories of real bird behavior.
–    BirdWingFeather by Siri Schillios contains vibrant bird paintings on one page and detailed abstracts on the next.
–    Stickeen by John Muir and illustrated by Carl Dennis Buell is an illustrated edition of an American adventure classic of John Muir and Stickeen the dog crossing a glacier during an ice storm.

Games and activities:
–    Why We Need Beetles, Urchins, and Worms by zoologist Frank Indiviglio is a fun and educational quiz deck about the importance of invertebrates.
–    The Charley Harper birds mobile spans 20′ and features 8 uniquely stylized birds. One of our best sellers this year!
–    The Mono Lake panoramic jigsaw puzzle is great family fun, but the mirror image can be quite the challenge at 500 pieces (measures 18″ x 36″ when completed).

Last but not least:
–    Our classic Mono Lake patch is a fun and versatile gift for any Mono Lake fan.
