Attu, a roving polar bear, will explore in this 45 book series many of our National Parks, plus other interesting areas such as the Alcan Highway, Washington D.C., Hawaii and many other cool places. He will also introduce children to historical times in our history helping to explain the Civil War, the Gold Rush and western expansion, the Lewis and Clark expedition, our Revolution and many other historical periods. He will travel to and explain volcanoes and volcanic process's, US geology and have his fur ruffled in winds as he examines storms and weather. Children will learn about geology, recreation, plant life, lapse rates, animal behavior, snow and water cycles, history and many other subjects that are specific to each Park. These subjects are explored in well researched text and vivid photography. They are written in an ' interactive way'. This allows children to interact with teachers, parents, friends or grandparents in an enjoyable learning process for all. Sample page.Cool, can you believe that I am looking at the Old Faithful geyser. Old Faithful is the most famous geyser in the world. Here I met up with my good friend, ranger Jenny. Ranger Jenny told me that Yellowstone National Park has more than 10,000 geothermal features. Do you know what a geothermal feature is? Old Faithful is one of these geothermal features. Yellowstone has many geysers, steam vents, mud pots and thermal pools. These are four types of geothermal features that I have visited in Yellowstone. What does geothermal mean? Geothermal means that the water that we see at the surface is being heated hundreds and even thousands of feet underground. Then it squeezes through cracks in the earth to come out where we see these beautiful and very interesting pools, mud pots, vents and geysers. Yellowstone has more geothermal features than anyplace on earth. I am a very fortunate bear to visit this special place. Pictures of geysers, springs and mud pots illustrate this page.
