Product Description

In Our Great Big Backyard by former First Lady Laura Bush and Jenna Bush Hager, Jane is so excited for summer vacation with her friends. Between the games they will play, and the movies they will watch, she is sure that it will be the best summer yet. . . that is, until her parents announce that the family is going on a Great American Road Trip, visiting national parks all across the country. Who cares about swamps, deserts, and camping? But somewhere along the way, Jane discovers the beauty in nature and discovers that there is more to life than screens and phones---that her country is bigger, brighter, and more exciting than she ever imagined! Recommended for ages 4 to 8 years.

Publisher's Description

#1 New York Times bestselling picture book, now available in paperback!

To help commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of the National Park Service, #1 New York Times bestselling authors former First Lady Laura Bush and her daughter Jenna Bush Hager have created an exuberant picture book tribute to our national parks and the importance and fun of connecting with nature.

Our Great Big Backyard follows Jane, whose plans of spending the summer playing video games with her friends are dashed when her parents announce that her family is going on a road trip to national parks around the country.

Somewhere between the Everglades and Big Bend National Park, things begin to change. Jane starts paying attention to the magnificent sights and spends less time looking at her screen.

The stunning views open up her imagination as she and her brother see everything that nature has to offer. And the more Jane discovers, the more she realizes how much there is to love about the outdoors—whether she’s in a national park across the country or right in her own backyard.
