I love this book! I am so glad I was given the opportunity to review Jeff Alt's book, A National Park series, The Adventures of Bubba Jones, Time Traveling Through Shenandoah National Park. This book is amazing and I cannot wait to share it with my sons (ages 10 and 9). When I received the book I decided to scan it a little first then I was going to read it aloud to them. Instead, I was hooked on the first page and could not stop reading it myself. Now after reading the book, I know my boys are going to love!
This is Book #2 in the National Park series, however, the book is written where you can jump right in and enjoy it without having read the first one. In his book, Jeff Alt, takes you on an adventure through the Shenandoah National Park. This book is fun and educational and helps you to feel like you are truly traveling with Bubba Jones and his family. The book is full of strong family values and adventure around every turn. While reading the book you will want to run outside and explore the world around you. This is truly a great read.
I highly recommend this book to families for read aloud or for children to enjoy on their own. I know we will be reading the rest of Jeff Alt's collection of the National Park series in the near future.
