About the Author

Jenna and Laura Sullivan are 8th and 9th grade students at Ashbrook Independent School and Corvallis High School, respectively, in Corvallis, Oregon. They both love sports, music, hiking, nature, and animals. They have spent a great deal of time exploring national parks throughout the western United States, accompanying their parents on scientific research and assessment projects. As a result, they have become experts in their own right. They enjoy science, writing, math, and history, and began publishing their own extended family "newspaper," called the Puptown News, when they were 6 and 7 years old.

Format: Paperback
In the Kids' Guide To The National Parks Of California And Oregon, 12 year old Jenna Sullivan and her 14 year old sister Laura effectively collaborate to write a thoroughly "kid friendly" guidebook to the spectacular parklands of California and Oregon. These include Redwood National Park; Yosemite National Park; Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks; Pinnacles National Monument; Point Reyes National Seashore; Lassen Volcanic National Park, Lava Beds National Monument; and Crater Lake National Park. These descriptive text covers the geology, vegetation, and wildlife of the parks, along with the young authors' insights into natural resource issues like air pollution, acid rain, fire ecology, wildlife habitat, plant ecology, and resource management. Very highly recommended for any family planning to visit these west coast parklands, the Kids' Guide To The National Parks Of California And Oregon is enhanced with an introduction, a conclusion, an index, author bios, and four color plates.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By M. H. Bayliss on January 23, 2001
Format: Paperback
As I read these two sister's enthusiastic descriptions of a number of national parks, I found myself forgetting that they were only kids. I'm a habitual reader of travel guides (otherwise known as the armchair traveler), so I feel qualified to say that this one is very refreshing. In fact, if you're thinking of travelling with your kids to any national park, you should pick up this book so you can see what it's like from their point of view. I particularly enjoyed the interviews with park rangers who treated their thoughtful questions very seriously and added a needed perspective on many parks. I'm impressed that two young kids were able to put together such a professional book -- I can only imagine what their next project will be!

Short book written by 2 girls about their trips to many National Parks across California and Oregon. My own daughters (in elementary school) were not interested in checking out travel literature even when it's written by other kids. However, I found the girls' accounts of their trip very helpful in planning our own trips to the National Parks here. It is much more personal, and less commercial than any true guidebooks and gave me the best idea of anything I read about what these places were really like.
