" Great book with wonderful illustrations. I'll probably purchase it for my grandkids but I just might keep it for myself. " said.

" Every state is listed with at least one National Park/et al. listed. " said.

" This book has wonderful illustrations and fun facts. It also includes artwork from original promotional posters from the 1930s and 1940s. " said.

" Fun for a road trip. If I win the lottery (or become independently wealthy in any fashion,) I would travel to each of these parks. " said.

" Bautifully illustrated look at America's national parks laid out state by state. Includes a look at parks by the numbers, and amazing but true facts. A wonderful resource for kids, or just really cool book to peruse."A wilderness, in contrast with those areas where man and his own works dominate the landscape, is hereby recognized as an area where the earth and community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain." -From the 1964 Wilderness Act " said.

"This is a very fun book! It is nicely set up, with lots of images and various facts, including Ranger Facts, quotes, a Great American Birdwatch, and "Amazing But True!" information. There are some really neat posters of the parks, which are said to be based on a series created during the Great Depression Era by WPA artists. Parks, monuments, and historic sites are featured, with at least one from each state, and those on territories including Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Very nice." said.

"I LOVE this book. I like going to National Parks. I also like looking at pretty posters. I also like fun facts. This book has ALL those things. The Parks are listed according to what state or territory they are located in. (I know, aren't you impressed that it has the National Parks in Puerto Rico, American Samoa, or the like? Who knew!) Also they have these great posters/illustrations that look like fun retro posters that must have been used by the National Parks once upon a time (the note says they "were originally produced between 1938 and 1941"). But some of them are pretty enough I would want to hang them up somewhere. The only sad part about this book is that now I have quite a few more places to plan on going on vacation. Not a bad thing itself...just that I don't have enough vacation time to do all of them next year. Fun book!" said.

" I enjoyed this as much as my kids did. We were always going, "Did you know?" to each other. " said.
