Reviews

...Alt did his homework to make learning fun for adults and children. My own curiosity was piqued as I turned the pages...Not only do readers learn about the cog railway that once traveled up Green Mountain, which was renamed Cadillac Mountain, they also learn who Robert Abbe and George Dorr were and what they did. Readers also can learn to search for glacial erratics and the animals, both land and sea, that can be spotted in our celebrated park...This is a great book for children looking to teach their parents a few historical facts about the island as their families traverse Acadia National Park.

--Sarah Hinckley, Mount Desert Islander

This is a book on a mission. Alt aims to inspire kids to explore our national parks and he does that by presenting fun facts in an imaginative way. (The new book is the third in his series.) In this installment, Tommy and his sister are racing against time to solve a mystery in the Acadia National Park in Maine.

--Carol Motsinger, "Cincinnati Enquirer"

These are absolutely adorable books...There are maps to interact with...A fun story and a guide for families planning a trip...

--Kristen Cornett, Fox 45 / ABC 22 Dayton

If you are unfamiliar with the series, The Bubba Jones series centers on Tommy "Bubba Jones," and his sister Jenny "Hug-a-Bug" when they are told that they have the power to time travel! Together they go on adventures solving mysteries, encountering various wildlife and animals, and learning about the history of the national parks. They've already gone on adventures "Through the Great Smokey Mountains," and "Through Shenandoah National Park." And now, they're venturing through Acadia National Park. The Bubba Jones series has been critically praised and is an award-winning children's series that kids who love exploring the outdoors are sure to love. Accompanied by charming illustrations by Hannah Touhy, the series is full of scientific and historical facts about nature and the beautiful parks that the characters time travel through. The series is meant to educate readers about the beauty of nature in a fun and engaging way and encourage kids to appreciate and go out and interact with parks on their own. This series is perfect for kids 8 to 12 years old, great for the classroom, and easy to jump right into with the third book, The Adventure of Bubba Jones: Time Traveling Through Acadia National Park.

"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.
