oday’s Favorite Travel Product: National Geographic Kids National Parks Guide U.S.A.
When two of my passions collide, I take note. I love travel (obviously) and I love education. Adding to that, I enjoy National Parks. I will say though, I don’t know a ton about them.
This informative guide details our National Parks with colored pictures, fun facts, and maps. Each page is better than the one before it.
National Geographic broke the book down by region: the East, the Midwest, the Southwest, and the West. Color coded tabs help you navigate quickly to each section.
Each section of the book details a few specific National Parks. Beyond the fabulous pictures, National Geographic included some great highlights and tips.
Also, the specific parks pages offer a “Dare To Explore” section with some adventurous places to visit. The book provides links for more information. In addition, they provide a “Checklist” for some very specific sights.
The regional sections end with a list of “Other Must See Park Properties.” And at the back of the book, National Geographic includes a complete list of National Park Properties.
My children enjoy flipping through this book to plan out our future travel. While my 9-year old is fully capable of reading each of the descriptions and fact lines, my 4-year old is not. However, even he can enjoy this book because of the photography and cool graphics. Both kids put Glacier National Park at the top of their wish list because of the pictures. They can’t wait to check out this suspension bridge (although, I’m not sure I can handle it!)
