Adventures with Jonny Road Trip To The Parks Book Review

We just returned from a wonderful three week adventure that included a visit to the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.

Adventures with Jonny-Road Trip To The Parks (SRP $17.95 hardcover) by author Michael A. DiLorenzo is a wonderful children’s picture book that is packed with lots of interesting information about U.S. and Canadian National Parks. This family travel guide was very appealing to my seven year old early reader who enjoyed learning new information that he could read aloud to his younger siblings. The illustrations by Jenniffer Julich are fun and engaging too.

On one of our many hikes in the Shenandoah National Park we encountered a black bear that bounded across our path. Since we had already hit the visitor’s center (as recommended in this book) prior to going into the back country we knew exactly what to do in this potentially dangerous situation and the kids did not panic (though I may have for a moment).

Adventures with Jonny-Road Trip To The Parks is like 3 book selections in one because it includes the adventure of Jonny and his family as your child can play along and search for hidden items in the story as well as a road trip travel guide and a neat animal guide too.

If you enjoy visiting our National Parks or have an upcoming road trip planned then I highly recommend purchasing your own copy of Adventures with Jonny-Road Trip To The Parks. We will be taking our copy with us on all of our future adventures in the great outdoors!
