Praise for Adventures of Bubba Jones: Time Travelling Through Shenandoah National Park by Jeff Alt and Hannah Tuohy
“In a book that begs to be read aloud to young children, Jeff Alt unveils the spirit (and spirits) of Shenandoah National Park. Kids are often fascinated with time travel, and Alt takes Bubba Jones, his sister, Jenny “Hug-A-Bug,” and their hiking family back in time to learn about geological events that shaped the mountains, discover how certain plants came to grow in the park, and marvel at the giant dinosaurs that once roamed the land. From moment to moment they never know what they will experience or who they may meet. Maybe it will be a chance to shake hands with Thomas Jefferson, jump into an ocean that no longer exists, or fish with Herbert Hoover. In addition, coded messages and a secret mission build anticipation for what will be revealed on the next page.”─Leonard M. Adkins, the author of The Appalachian Trail: A Visitor’s Companion and 50 Hikes in Northern Virginia
“Jeff Alt’s new book The Adventures of Bubba Jones: Time Traveling Through Shenandoah National Park, is a fun and educational paperback for children and adults to enjoy, whether gathered around a campfire or just pretending to be! Alt weaves secret codes, historical time travel, strong family values, and adventure in an entertaining tale that promotes appreciation and respect for the great outdoors. It’s a wonderful book to start before a trip to Shenandoah, and finish during late afternoons or evenings in the Park. It would also make a superb classroom selection as preview to a field trip to Shenandoah National Park.”─Karen Higgs, Teacher and Author of Big Meadows: A Place in Shenandoah National Park
