Hello! Let me tell you how our journey begins!
JUNIOR PARK RANGERS
Nature is all around us: from the air we breathe to the water we drink to the parks we love to visit. As a Junior Park Ranger, it is your responsibility to take care of these places and the people around you. We are all connected, and we all depend on each other to thrive. By working together to protect nature and parks, we will continue to use words like “amazing,” “awesome,” and “mysterious” to describe the world we live in. Nature is depending on you!
Are you ready to explore everything nature has to share with you? Great!
Let’s get started. The parks await you!
$1 from each book sold will be donated to a nonprofit that protects and stewards one of the featured parks in our adventures!
I love to learn about animals, nature and how I can help to protect the environment for my friends and family.
The Junior Park Ranger Adventure Book Series teaches me to how to protect nature and the environment.
Visiting new parks is my favorite thing to do with my friends and family and this book series explores parks that I want to visit!

“It is a unique and intriguing take on junior rangers. Definitely a different perspective than classic junior ranger stories. Kids will be engaged in the story and enjoy that the main character that they are supposed to identify with is earning his confidence in a new park environment and making friends. I like the light JEDI messaging too.”
Assistant Park Manager, Flathead Lake State Park
“As I read My first day as a Junior Park Ranger, I literally felt like I was living that this past two weeks, as the new park employee!! It tells the whole story of a first day at the park. It also really shows the diversity of the "rangers" a park has working at it. The book is absolutely engaging and I already want to a few copies for my nieces and nephews as well my friends' kids. Now, are you able to sell that wholesale? The parks I work at have gift shops. And this book would fill a huge need for younger readers and families”
President, California State Park Rangers Association
“With delightfully colorful illustrations, My First Day as a Junior Ranger introduces a variety of park jobs, as Kyler (a prairie dog), in his new uniform and ranger hat, meets up with the park’s wildlife biologist (owl), ecologist (wolf), interpreter (sea lion), lifeguard (vaquita) and archaeologist (tortoise)."
North American Representative, International Ranger Federation
“My First day as a Junior Park Ranger is a great new book that can introduce kids to the numerous jobs and careers that are important for taking care of our parks and natural areas…. This is a great book that I enjoyed reading with my child and look forward to reading it again many times!” Andy Wright, International Rangers Federation, North America Representative
