Publisher Comments:

Includes a Fold-out Commemorative Quarter Collector!

The perfect guide for your next family adventure, this fun-filled book explores more than 75 U.S. parks, monuments, and landmarks, from Maine's Acadia National Park to California's Sequoia National Park.


From Yellowstone to the Statue of Liberty, from Gettysburg National Battlefield to Mount Rushmore, National Parks is the only kid-friendly, family-oriented book that covers all of the U.S. national parks, plus famous monuments and landmarks. With a lively text and hundreds of color illustrations and photographs throughout, it offers fascinating, memorable information on every aspect of the parks, such as the history, geography, natural wonders, native wildlife and birds, and unique features that make each park special.

Organized alphabetically by state, National Parks takes readers on a whirlwind trip to 75 locations, including Denali National Park, Hot Springs National Park, Everglades National Park, Fort McHenry, White Mountain National Forest, Ellis Island, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Zion National Park, Block Island National Wildlife Refuge, Mt. Hood National Forest, and many more.

Also included are dozens of activities, such as quizzes, word and picture hunts, and car games, as well as a detachable national-park quarter collector, so kids can collect each of the 56 commemorative quarters to be issued by the U.S.

Synopsis:

The national parks have been called "America's best idea" — and some of the best scientific ideas are happening right now inside these protected American spaces that welcome more than 270 million visitors each year. Meet up with scientists studying geysers, grizzlies, salamanders, cacti, and fireflies in some of America's most treasured places: our national parks. Another great addition toand#160;the Scientists in the Field series for ages 10 to 14.

Synopsis:

America's National Parks are protected places and have become living museums for as many as 270 million visitors per year! In addition, researchers are able to perform long term studies of a wide number of subjects fromand#160;salamanders the size of thumbnails to giganticand#160;geothermal geysers. These parks are natural laboratories for scientists. Did you know that Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming sits on top of an active (and very large) volcano? This volcano is monitored and studied on a daily basis, not only as a means of protection (though it seems a long way off from erupting) but also as a way of understanding how the environment changes and influences what goes onand#160;deep underground.

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; The scientists profiled in The Park Scientists also study grizzly bears in Yellowstone, the majestic Sagauro catci in Arizona, and fireflies in Tennessee --and#160;and suggestand#160;many ways for the average reader of any age to help out. The emphasis here is twofold: the great science that happens everyday in these important, protected spaces, and the fact that you can visit all of them and participate in the research.
