Take a tour of America’s great outdoors and discover the beauty and diversity of its most iconic and majestic national parks. Packed with maps and fascinating facts about the flora and fauna unique to each of the 21 parks portrayed, this lushly illustrated coast-to-coast journey documents in large format the nation’s most magnificent and sacred places—and shows why they should be preserved for future generations to enjoy.
Gorgeous! The style and design of this book is so fantastic—not just the illustrations, but all the visual elements. It looks great, it feels great, and it reads great. There’s a ton of information in here, but it’s not too hard to read through each park briefly or go more in depth on one section. It’s perfect for preparing kids for a trip or getting kids excited about geography and science!
