Gramma and Grampa's Adventures in Yellowstone National Park

Synopsis:

Gramma and Grampa lived pretty close to Yellowstone National Park. They went to the park often to enjoy watching the many animals that lived in this wonderful area. Their adventures carried them to many parts of the park, including the Lamar and Hayden Valleys and beyond. The animals they encountered ranged from the mighty moose to the multi-colored harlequin ducks; from the magnificent elk to the playful otters.

Gramma and Grampa liked to travel to Yellowstone during all seasons of the year. Whether they snow-shoed, cross-country skied, biked, or hiked they always managed to have an exciting time and see wonderful wildlife.

This fully illustrated chapter book is for growing readers and all who enjoy reading to others. Each chapter is a story within itself, leading however, to an exciting climax in the dead of winter.

There are line drawings at the end of each chapter that can be colored
