Grand Teton kids’ book is an innovative journal and treasure hunt
A new book makes it fun for young people to find and identify Grand Teton National Park’s most frequently seen plants, animals, geological features, and more, and then share their experiences with friends, family, and classmates.
What I Saw in Grand Teton describes specific things kids can see in the park and asks them to keep track of what they saw. For example, when kids see moose, they write in the book how many they saw, where they saw them, and what they were doing. The book explains the natural history of moose and uses several photographs to help kids identify them.
From mountains and lakes to flowers and historic buildings, finding and checking off the various features becomes an educational treasure hunt, making the book a great way to keep kids entertained and engaged on park visits. There’s even a page for getting a park ranger’s autograph.
The book’s layout is very readable and kid friendly, and it features dozens of beautiful color photos by photographer Christopher Cauble.
