National Parks: A Kid's Guide to America's Parks, Monuments and Landmarks by Erin McHugh; Art by Neil Aspinall, Doug Leen and Brian Maebius

Featuring an in-depth look at National Parks in each state, this book will make you yearn for warm weather and family road-trips around the country. The book features old travel posters that promote the Nation's greatest parks, like Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. Interesting facts on each page accompany illustrations and information like how many acres the park has or how many people visit each year. According to National Parks, Crater Lake National Park in Oregon has 5 trillion gallons of water in the lake on average and only 1 person has been to the bottom of the lake and survived.

Whether you are nostalgic for old camping trips or need inspiration for your next vacation, National Parks will make you daydream of the wilderness that is in our own backyard.
