    Difficult to navigate

    Beautiful photography, but difficult to navigate if you just want info on the parks!

    A simple game to play on the road

    This Nook app has questions with a multiple choice format, nothing too difficult. The family could test their knowledge of the parks as they travel and learn a thing or two while they were at it.

    Don't Bother

    Difficult to navigate. No guide to follow. Scroll at bottom really does nothing. Just not nook friendly..
