What the publisher says:

Illustrated by Ted Rand

This is the story of two mountains. The earth made one. Elizabeth in her yellow sun-hat made the other.

In a simple lyrical text, Lisa Westberg Peters describes the creation and evolution of mountains by comparing the grander, centuries-long geological process to Elizabeth’s small-scale activities on the beach. Ted Rand’s spectacular paintings illuminate and reinforce the basic concepts presented in the story. The result is an unusually evocative first lesson in geology that helps young children understand how Elizabeth’s small sand-hill and the majestic earth mountain are transformed by the sun, the wind and the rain.
