Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Welsh
In this installment of the "Landmark Top Tens" series, readers are introduced to the must-see national parks of the world. You are invited to take a trip around the world without leaving your seat! Your travels begin in Argentina and include a tour of national parks in Wyoming, Sweden, Australia, South Africa, Ecuador, Florida, Costa Rica, Greenland, Iceland, and Russia. Wonder at the waterfalls in Argentina, gaze at the geysers in Yellowstone, and coast through coral reefs in Florida. If you're more of the adventurous type, you'll enjoy taking a zip line tour through Arenal Volcano National Park in Costa Rica or taking a frozen trek to the top of Northeast Greenland National Park. Large, colorful photographs accompany the text. The photos take up more space than the text, which will encourage struggling and reluctant readers to read independently. Other highly visual and helpful nonfiction text features include statistics boxes for each national park, maps, fun fact bubbles, and an index. The vocabulary is appropriate for third- or fourth-graders, and more challenging words are in bold throughout the text so that readers may look them up in the glossary. Companion book titles and websites are provided in the back of the book for readers wishing to further explore national parks and make connections to their learning. Reviewer: Heather Welsh
