Dreaming of Colorado tells the story of Cosmo the Cougar Cub, who doesn’t want to go to sleep because he is having so much fun playing. But his mom reminds him that there are many exciting things he can dream about. This convinces Cosmo to go to sleep, and he dreams that he is riding on a magic canoe that takes him back in time. Cosmo and his animal friends go on several adventures and see dinosaurs, volcanoes, Native Americans, and miners. Each of Cosmo’s adventures is based on real events that occurred in Colorado’s past.

About the Author
Stephanie Lowman has lived in Colorado for the past 25 years. She has spent much time exploring the Rocky Mountains and has gained a great appreciation for the wildlife that inhabits the state. To produce her illustrations, Stephanie paints with Gouache watercolor and then renders detail and shadows with a black pen. She has been sketching and painting for over twenty years, and this is her first book. Grant Collier is a lifelong resident of Colorado and has been working as a photographer and writer since 1996. Each year, he spends countless hours traveling across Colorado and the West taking photographs of the natural landscape. In producing this book, Grant used artistic filters in Photoshop to seamlessly combine his photographs with the illustrations of animals drawn by Stephanie. This is Grant s ninth book, and it is his first children s book.

Dreaming of Colorado: A Bedtime Story based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This book is amazing! The title drew us to the book but the illustrations sealed the deal. Being Denver residents, it was our honor to support these locals. It is informative for children as well as adults. (My husband and I learned a few things at story time tonight!) Our toddler is 2.5 and it has a great underlying moral of bedtime in general. It tells of the State's history and includes wonderful characters of animals found here. This would be a great gift for children of all ages! We usually have our son choose his story but I will be suggesting this often!
