What a great, kid-friendly book! I loved this book! It’s just like you are right along Venture the teddy bear as he visits this super national park. I learned so much effortlessly-when Venture describes his adventures and the natural and cultural history of Great Smokies, you really feel like you are there.

In an intimate and charming way, Sloan Heermance captures the wonder that we all feel when we encounter Yellowstone’s beauty through the eyes of her teddy bear friend Venture, and manages to teach us about America’s first national park along the way. Here’s to more adventures for Venture ahead!
