National Parks of the U.S.A. by Kate Siber
Release Date: July 3, 2018
Illustrated by: Chris Turnham
Published by: Quarto Publishing- Wide Eyed Editions
Number of pages: 112
Age range: 7-12 years old
This is the perfect book for kids to read during the summer–whether they’re visiting these sites in person or taking their visit through reading. There are maps, descriptions, and facts about the best known American National Parks to help kids understand and appreciate those areas. There are plenty of pages to pore over and learn lots of great information, but it never feels like an info dump since the text is paired with frequent illustrations.
In a departure from other reference type books, it uses illustrations rather than actual photographs. Some people may not enjoy that format as much, but I thought the illustrations were beautiful and I really enjoyed the unique approach.
I have seen other non-fiction books by this publisher and I can tell this one would be even more beautiful in physical form!
