I’m on vacation right now which is the perfect accompaniment for a book about National Parks.
While there’s no National Park in Aruba listed in the book, there are plenty of other beautiful parks to see across the US and the Caribbean. I was amazed at how many beautiful parks there were! The book can be used so many different ways. I sat down and read it cover to cover which was great because of the great descriptions and the AMAZING photographs. You can read the book from A to Z and learn about every single fabulous park that exists.
Alternately, if you’re trying to plan a vacation around a National Park, you can use this book for that as well. Pick a state and the book will tell you what parks are there and what fabulous experiences they have to offer. The photos are amazing. Did I mention that? I love following Ranger Rick‘s (I used to read his magazines as a child) useful facts in each park. For example, The Capitol Reef National Park in Southern Utah is famous for “Red and rugged landscape that locals refer to as a ‘reef'”. The incredible photos include pics of a cute little canyon treefrog, a side-blotched lizard and a golden eagle. It’s like you’re right there in Utah.
If you have a little one who can’t quite read yet, no matter! They can marvel at the beautiful photos! This book has something for everyone! The National Park Service turned 100 just a few days ago, can you believe it? 100 years of National Parks and I haven’t seen any of them (sadly there are none in PA where I live); but what are YOU waiting for! Go get a National park visit in your schedule and maybe have a slice of cake on me. I cannot resist birthday cake. But you knew that already didn’t you?
