Incredibly written, this book is not only educational, but entertaining. Jane P. Gardner, with a degree in geology, uses her knowledge to put together an amazing tool for parents and educators to buy for their children. J. Elizabeth Mills, also an author to the book, is an experienced children's book writer.
This book is a useful resource for home schooling, for summer and winter indoor activity book, and useful for long car trips. Many children may find it fun to take along on camping trips. Parents can easily combine additional activities with many sections of the book. For example, when reading about Vermont, information is included about how maple syrup is made. How to cook pancakes or waffles, making your own syrup, or visiting a maple tree farm would combine nicely with it.
