REVIEW: HAPPY NATIONAL BISON DAY!
Did you know that the North American Bison is the official National Mammal of the United States? And that you might find them at the first national park in the world, Yellowstone National Park? And that "Buddy Bison" is the mascot for the National Park Trust? Neither did I, until I read this book:
Join Christopher, Elena, Park Ranger Aunt Rosa, and Buddy on fictional adventure through Yellowstone National Park. When Aunt Rosa gets an emergency call and Christopher gets lost, Elena and her Buddy Bison must search for her brother. Along the way, they encounter geysers, thermal springs, and bison, of course. This entertaining story by Ilona Holland weaves interesting Yellowstone and bison facts that are accompanied by breathtaking photographs, as only National Geographic can do. Supplementary back matter includes a map and brief history of Yellowstone, tips on park preservation, and facts about bison, geysers, and more. A forward by Gilbert Grosvenor, Chairman Emeritus of National Geographic Society, encourages young readers to learn about and become more involved with their parks. I think after reading BUDDY BISON’S YELLOWSTONE ADVENTURE, young readers will do just that!
