The Complete Kamana for Kids Series by Bob Repoley and Barbara English. Books One, Two and Three are each a series of nature-based stories starring Running Deer and Moon Bird as they adventure and explore in nature. An activity page is provided at the end of each story in order to help each child practice a nature awareness skill.

They provide fun learning through mystery and adventure. 5 stories, 100 pages, 42 full color illustrations, 5 black and white illustrations. For ages 6 to 10, or younger with adult assistance.
Book Two: Hazards is a fun and sometimes mysterious look at many of the common hazards in the natural world. It follows Running Deer and Moon Bird on an eventful overnight hike where they encounter getting lost, lightning, wild animal encounters, poisonous plants, insects, and much more.

Book Three: Giving Thanks. Running Deer and Moon Bird encounter a variety of unusual animals and people, and find reason to give thanks for the good things in their lives.

It can be read independently of our other books. 5 Stories, 77 pages, 43 black and white illustrations. For ages 8 to 10, or younger with adult assistance.
