The Reviews Are In!

“…Alt did his homework to make learning fun for adults and children. My own curiosity was piqued as I turned the pages…Not only do readers learn about the cog railway that once traveled up Green Mountain, which was renamed Cadillac Mountain, they also learn who Robert Abbe and George Dorr were and what they did. Readers also can learn to search for glacial erratics and the animals, both land and sea, that can be spotted in our celebrated park…This is a great book for children looking to teach their parents a few historical facts about the island as their families traverse Acadia National Park.“

The Bubba Jones series has been critically praised, and is an award winning children’s series that kids who love exploring the outdoors are sure to love. Accompanied by charming illustrations by Hannah Touhy, the series is full of scientific and historical facts about nature and the beautiful parks that the characters time travel through. The series is meant to educate readers about the beauty of nature in a fun and engaging way, and encourage kids to appreciate and go out and interact with parks on their own.
