Ranger Rick goes to the National Parks by Ken Keffer and Stacy Tornio is a very useful resource for children and their parents who are or might be planning a trip to any one of the National Parks. The parks are broken down by geographical location. A brief history of the National Park System is given as well as an explanation of why these parks are so important to us.
Each separate park is also described by location, history and size. Several important things to lookout for are listed with each

For the most part a great book. There was an editing mistake on the Badlands page (some of the facts were about Theodore Roosevelt National Park, not Badlands)

Ranger Rick National Parks! by Stacy Tornio and Ken Keffer is a wonderful bite size trip into many of the US National Parks. Anyone who enjoys reading the Ranger Rick magazine would love this book. While it does not go into great depth on any one park, the book gives just enough information bites to pique any child’s curiosity.

I liked the magazine format of the pages with the photographs. The type of information chosen would be perfect for elementary readers. Not too wordy but not lacking either

Ahh...the National Parks, I love them! Making it to all of the National Parks is on my bucket list, but I haven't gotten a passport. I've been to several of the parks, and this book would have been mighty handy, especially with kids. I will definitely have to purchase to keep with us on the next trip and recommend for our library to purchase. Thank you to NetGalley and Rowman & Littlefield Muddy Boots for an advanced copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

It is great that all of the U

Ranger Rick's Travels: National Parks! by Stacy Tornio is a book that is colorful which will help children appreciate the beauty and diversity of the United States. The book is categorized within the different regions of the country and then showcases National Parks within that area. Every National Park is mentioned. The pictures and facts about the parks are a great way to teach children about America. The book catches the attention of children and adults. I would love to include thi

I really liked going through this children's book for a few reasons:
1. I'm a giant nerd with the National Parks Passport and am making it my mission to hit all the major spots (by the way, nerds are a GOOD thing).
2. I have a 4-year-old niece who I'm dying to take traveling (the hurry for her to grow up is in direct violation of the need for her to never grow up).
3. The pictures, what to keep an eye out for, what not to miss, or other fun suggestions from Ranger Rick is great and simplified for b

Nice introduction. Like the namesake magazine, information in this book is sparse. Readers looking for more than just a brief glimpse of highlights on individual parks will need to look elsewhere. Sadly, I could only speak from experience re two of the parks, the Great Smoky Mountains and Mammoth Cave. While I personally want more information than what was given, I could see this book being a nice, general, quick read for elementary students whose families are planning to travel.
