Eli and Mort’s Epic Adventure Vail
Eli and Mort the Moose are on their next adventure and this time it’s in Vail!
When Eli tries snowboarding, Mort carves right behind him. When Eli catches big air, Mort bellows, “Yahoo!”
The two are inseparable, and as the stars of a new children’s book series, “Eli and Mort’s Epic Adventures,” they channel all the joy and wonder that kids feel in the big, white world of a ski resort. While in Vail their adventures just get more epic! Eli and Mort learn to Snowboard, build a snowman, star gaze and so much more!
The Series features background illustrations by local children ages 7 to 17 on every page, with Eli and Mort professionally illustrated. A portion of the proceeds go back to the Education Foundation of Eagle County [E•ƒ(ec)}. Don’t miss Eli and Mort on their next adventure!

What They’re Saying
The founding fathers wrote about a system of community schools that would safeguard the principles of democracy and ensure a shot at the American dream for every child in our nation. In the many decades since the founding of our republic, more and more of society’s woes have been laid at the schoolhouse door. Because we love our children and our community, the people working in our schools gladly accept this responsibility – but we can’t do it alone. The Education Foundation of Eagle County has been an essential partner and absolute lifesaver in supporting our schools in meeting these noble goals.

Please share my thanks with the entire EFEC board for the generous funding of our grant to support early literacy. The additional literacy support for early grades will enable Eagle Valley Elementary to meet students’ individual needs and to raise student achievement. It is wonderful to live and work in a community that cares so deeply about education.
