'Wonders of America: Yosemite' by Marion Dane Bauer, illustrated by John Wallace, will make readers eager to take a vacation to Yosemite National Park. Besides the colorful and descriptive images that paint a picture of the beauty of the park, there are interesting facts about sequoia trees, waterfalls, and even the history of the park, including how President Lincoln signed a bill in 1864 setting aside the land the park is on for the people.

From flowers to glaciers to rocks and every other kind of nature, the book shares the power of reliving the past while seeing it in the present. There are even added facts at the end of the book to learn more about the park, its ancient and more modern history, and what people can do while there.

It is a definite must read for young people as well as for anyone who wants a glimpse into what the park has to offer.
