"This succinct look at all 62 U.S. National Parks is ideal for armchair travel, preparing for vacation, and getting background for reports. Leighton's maps feature drawings of mountains, animals, plants, and other features, and the Southwestern style of her cartoon illustrations creates a dreamy feel that will draw readers in and entice them to learn more. Great for classroom and public library geography and travel collections."--Henrietta Verma "Booklist"

The new book, National Parks Maps transports readers to all of these locations through beautiful illustrations from Abby Leighton."--Jennifer Swartvagher "Red Tricycle" 

"Perfect for nature fans of all ages!"--Melanie Dragger "The Literary West" 

"Leighton's illustrations are similar in tone and feel to the iconic WPA national park posters from the 1930s and '40s, and they're complemented by detailed blocks of text that highlight what's cool about each park. The book is a playful, pretty introduction to what these parks have to offer, and it doesn't risk overwhelming young readers: Our 8 year old remained engaged and interested to learn more the whole way through."--Ryan Meith "Wired"
