Product Description

Welcome to Everglades National Park!
 
Imagine a place where alligators and crocodiles coexist. Where manatees float just beneath the surface of a slow-moving river. And where black panthers prowl the dense tropical woodlands. That’s just what you’ll find in Everglades National Park, a protected area of wetlands in southeast Florida. Made up of marshes, swamps, a river, and a bay, Everglades serves as host to an abundance of wildlife, from algae to alligators. It’s here where more than 700 kinds of plants, 120 types of trees, and countless animals (including many on the endangered species list) grow and thrive, making Everglades one of the most ecologically diverse parks on the planet.

Some parks Sept. 1 2012
By wogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This National Geographic Guide is good for the national parks that it features, but under no circumstances can you assume that this is a wide ranging guide. It gives good information on 4 parks in the east, 4 in the Midwest, 3 in the southwest, 13 in the west. There is a listing of 34 more parks with a few lines about them and then a listing of the 50 states with the parks inside their states, but no web sites or other information is given. It is also strange to see that this list does not include the parks it has already detailed...Maine is listed as having none when it already described Acadia. A glossary and an index are included.
There is excellent information on how to use the book and keys. The maps are good; there is information on best views, and exploration tips. There are also color pictures.

This is nice for what it has, but it is far from being a guide to the national parks. The list is very cursory and leaves out huge sections of the nation. It would have been of far greater interest to kids if one park from each state could have been featured. Children in the middle of the country - Minnesota, Iowa, Oklahoma, etc. have nothing featured near them.

Nat Geo does it again! Jan. 17 2013
By Emille - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love any book that make my children thirst for more knowledge! My 6 and 10 year old boys enjoy reading the fun facts and researching more information on the parks that they find REALLY interesting!! I would recommend to parents with children that don't yet LOVE to read. This will get them really interested in learning more and reading more!

guide for national parks July 5 2012

This guide had very interesting pictures and detailed descriptions written for children. I used it for a National Park Theme for the Vacation Bible School at our church. The children in my class did have some interest in looking at it.
