Robert Bateman, a naturalist and painter, was born in Toronto, Ontario, in 1930. Fascinated by the natural world as a child, inspired by the Group of Seven and encouraged by his parents, Robert developed a painting style that has been internationally lauded, and his work has been exhibited around the world. As an artist, an art and geography teacher and an advocate, Robert has used his renown to promote environmental causes, and in 1999 the Audubon Society named him one of the top 100 environmental proponents of the twentieth century. Robert was made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1984 and a Member of the Order of British Columbia in 2001. He lives on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.

— Booklist

"Great for sharing…The basic details and highly visual presentation of Robert Bateman: The Boy Who Painted Nature will introduce the youngest listeners to an inspiring story before they encounter more about this acclaimed naturalist…Highly Recommended."

— CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"Text was brief, but informative and gave Robert Bateman's stunning photography, etchings, and paintings the limelight they deserved throughout the story."

— Youth Services Book Review

"Immersive…The many fine details in the images alone are a commentary on [Bateman's] work ethic, as well as his respect and passion for his subjects…Bateman's conservationist philosophy comes across clearly…[and] is offered as a rallying cry for us all."

— Quill & Quire
