Yellowstone National Park Book List

Prepare Your Kids for an Epic Trip to Yellowstone National Park

Our family's favorite way to learn about new places that we want to visit it by reading books about the place.  We love to read books, work puzzles, and do other fun activities to help us learn all about the places we're preparing to explore!

Pre-learning about all you'll see & encounter on your trip to Yellowstone National Park will help your family better understand the wonders & delights of Yellowstone before your visit.  Your kids will be able to ask park rangers great questions to help them understand more.  

There is no better way to prepare to help your family get the most out of your trip to Yellowstone National Park than spending a few days (or weeks) learning about Yellowstone ahead of time.  You'll see their excitement build each day before & during your trip as you learn!

Many of these books and activities could be used in the car to help make your roadtrip to Yellowstone more enjoyable by keeping your crew occupied for those long hours on the road.  You can even pair some of the books and activities below with the North American Animals Toob and the Steve Spangler Science Extreme Geyser Tube to build a great Yellowstone National Park Morning Basket!
