Do Princesses and Super Heroes Hit the Trails? by Carmela LaVigna Coyle
To be published on September 30, 2016.
Another fantastic and inspiring book from the author of the Do Princesses...? series! Join our favorite princess and her super hero companion as they explore the national parks and discover that the Great Outdoors hold a bounty of excitement and adventure!
This book came out just in time for the 100th anniversary of the National Parks System. It's a great read aloud for kids ages 3-5. It features a family looking for something fun to do. Each 2-page spread features a different National Park as well as a rhyming stanza highlighting a feature of the park. The message being that there are many parks and many things to discover.
The illustrations are really sweet. They depict a brother and sister exploring the parks with their parents. My favorite page was Zion National Park's "narrows" hike, which I did with my family when I was 16. I also loved the Denali National Park drawing. It looked just like some of the pictures I took when I was there in 2003 - although in cartoon form of course.
Any family that loves the outdoors or aspires to visit all of the parks will love this book.
My Rating: 4 stars
