"The Adventures Of Bubba Jones" Can Help Encourage Kids To Connect With The Outdoors. If kids could read Jeff Alt's book and then actually go hike through Acadia National Park, that would be super cool. However, if that's not possible, reading the book can still get kids excited about researching national parks, their histories, and interesting facts about the parks. What exactly is this book, "The Adventures of Bubba Jones: Time Traveling Through Acadia National Park," about? It's the third book in the Bubba Jones series (a Children's National Park book series). The main characters, Tommy "Bubba Jones" and his sister, Jenny "Hug-a-Bug," are on a mission to solve a mystery in Acadia National Park. To make matters even more interesting and exciting, Bubba Jones and Hug-a-Bug have time-travel skills that they inherited from their Papa Lewis. They utilize such skills to travel into the past and to help protect national park wildlands. But, shhh--that part is a family secret. So, pick up your copy of this Bubba Jones book. You can then follow Bubba Jones and his sister as they try to solve the mystery while taking an exciting adventure in Acadia National Park. You'll learn how they decode a secret message and meet interesting people. You will also learn about the Acadia National Park and its history and secrets. You'll never look at a national park the same after experiencing this book.
The book also includes a Curriculum Guide, which can encourage further research into various topics. It also has Discussion Questions to help stimulate inquisitive and creative minds. It would be a wonderful book for a summer reading group for kids! The book is written for children 8 to 12 years of age.--Kelly's Thoughts on Things
