Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Reading Mr. Graf's wonderful and often breathtaking vacation adventures of the Parker family made me want to grab my backpack and head for the high country."—Marsha Holland, literacy coordinator
Children's Literature - Bonita Herold
The Parkers are backpacking through Olympic National Park on another adventure. They visit tide pools along the coast, hike through the park's rainforest, and enjoy the majestic scenery. A park ranger briefs them on safety rules. Keeping their distance from wildlife is one of them. James learns the hard way to pack up anything with a scent in his bear container. Mr. Parker learns that he had better look where he steps. Beware the bears, but look out for the small critters, too. Wasps are the most dangerous creatures of all. What importance does rain play? The Parkers see firsthand how water makes the area beautiful but also provides natural habitats for so many different kinds of animals. In each book in the "Adventures with the Parkers" series, geared toward age's eight to twelve, emphasis is placed on facts, beauty, and safety. The series provides an abundance of useful information as well as excitement. There is something for everyone. Reviewer: Bonita Herold
