" This book is full of interesting information and beautiful photographs.I received an ARC from NetGally. " said.

" 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. " said.

"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 both children and adults. Am so happy to have a companion for my passport!

"Full Review
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 this book in my classroom for when teaching American History. For example, if I am talking about California I could show the students a park from that region or if we are discussing about New England I could do the same. This book is a great resource whether teaching 1st grade or 8th grade.

"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 United States National Parks are included. I love the organized approach. It will help anyone find the highlights and also encourages us to find the hidden treasures, my favorite thing to do. Each park is broken down into sections for quick reference. The photographs are truly amazing. I appreciate that this book also encourages us to celebrate the fact that we have these glorious National Parks, respect them, and to think of all the people who help make them available for us (National Park Service).

" 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) " said.

"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 park followed by 5 things the child and family should plan on doing in the park. Also included are many beautiful photos of the parks and the animals.
Reading through the book, it is amazing how many parks make up the National Park System. With the 100th Anniversary of the American Park System, this book would make a wonderful gift, or an excellent addition to a families vacation planning. It would allow a child to help with the planning and give him his own guidebook to follow. It is filled with wonderful, easy to understand information and beautiful pictures for children and their families.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and Rowman & Littlefield Muddy Boots in exchange for a fair and honest review.
