Do Princesses and Super Heroes Hit the Trails? by Carmela LaVigna Coyle, illustrated by Mike Gordon

If only it were this easy!  A family is sitting around asking, "What can we do for a super fun day?"  They decide, "The national parks look like a good place to play."  So they load up the car, and visit a dozen national parks.  Don't I wish!  So goes Carmela LaVigna Coyle's Do Princesses and Super Heroes Hit the Trails? 

It's an over-simplified idea, of course.  Anyone who has travelled to our national parks knows that, in most cases, you have to plan carefully and well in advance.  But those details are for the grown-ups. This book is for the kids!  Coyle, along with Mike Gordon's cute illustrations, manages to capture the essential idea of these national parks in a couple of pages each.  It's enough to inspire young and old readers to start making plans now for a visit.  A lava tunnel?  A mule ride into a canyon?  Giant cacti?  A moose?  Gorgeous views?  Count me in!

Do Princesses and Super Heroes Hit the Trails? is simple and fun and is sure to plant some seeds in little minds who are already planning their next vacation.
