The King Of Keji by Jan L. Coates. Read the story, go on a road trip and make a craft

Jacob’s brother, Ben, is always king of the castle. Jacob is tired of being the dirty rascal!

Jacob and his grandfather decide to set out on a camping trip to Nova Scotia’s Kejimkujik National Park. There, they find lots of hidden treasure fit for a king, like emeralds (the green of a hemlock’s foliage), amber (the eyes of a deer), and diamonds (in the sky).

Jacob even builds himself a crown, and it isn’t long before Gramps declares Jacob the King of Keji!
