Connecting Kids to Nature: Lantz Museum Launches Children’s Book Series with “The Unfinished Symphony”

Located in a beautiful, untouched natural area, the Lantz Museum is excited to present Christopher Lantz’s children’s book, “The Unfinished Symphony: The Odyssey of Three Creatures in Search of a Natural World,” with illustrations by Val M. Cox. This book is the first of three planned releases that show the museum’s effort to share stories that deeply connect with nature and the historic lands of the First People.

Set in the peaceful and inspiring surroundings of the museum, “The Unfinished Symphony” takes young readers on an adventure through a world where magic feels real. The story is about a young boy and his two magical friends—a Bison named Buffler and a Kangaroo—as they journey through a world filled with natural wonders and exciting discoveries.

Val M. Cox’s colorful illustrations make the story come alive, reflecting the museum’s goal to help people enjoy art and nature. Each ‘Symphony’ in the book looks at different aspects of the natural world, helping young readers understand and appreciate the need to take care of our environment.
