Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Transporting readers to places of great natural beauty, each volume in the new A True Book: National Parks series showcases one of America's most frequently visited parks. Clear, colorful photos offer armchair travelers enticing views of the parks and their wildlife. The books individually introduce the history of a particular locale and describe how it became part of the national park system. Other topics discussed are unusual landforms, common animals and plants, varied ecosystems found there, and means of protecting the park from various threats. Challenges noted in Grand Canyon encompass endangered animals and plants, invasive species, as well as air and water pollution. Besides the back-matter basics, each book includes a guide to animal tracks in the park and a Map Mystery, which challenges readers to follow the five-step directions to find a destination on a double-page map of the park. Useful for school reports, these accessible books offer information as well as eye-catching photos of natural wonders.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2018 Booklist"
