"Engaging and educational, this book will be a great resource for park visitors."

“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.”

Children's Literature - Lisa Colozza Cocca
This fact based fiction title is another entry in the "Adventures with the Parkers" series. The Parkers, Mom, Dad, and twins Morgan and James, travel the United States visiting the national parks. In this adventure, the family hikes, fishes, and camps in Yellowstone National Park. They see geysers, waterfalls, lakes, springs, and rock formations. They also have a couple of close encounters with wildlife. For example, the family comes face to face with a charging bison while waiting for Old Faithful to erupt. Later, Dad and the twins encounter an angry grizzly bear. The excitement continues as the family retreats down the mountain. After meeting Mom, a severe thunder storm erupts making the downward climb treacherous. Nonfiction sections are interspersed throughout the book and are differentiated from the fiction with salmon colored shading. The book would be of particular interest to children who have visited Yellowstone Park or are planning to do so. However, adventure readers in general will enjoy this offering, as well.
