Stop by Books Inc. Alameda for a special Meet-and-Greet Booksigning with local children's book author Jennifer Benito-Kowalski in celebration of her inventive & educational book, My first day as a Junior Park Ranger. (Ages 6+) Jennifer will be signing books and meeting fans between 3:00PM and 4:00PM.
It's Junior Park Ranger Kyler's first day on the job. He's a prairie dog who has spent his whole life in Prairie Dog Town, and now he's in a new place where he doesn't know anyone. Will he make friends? Will he do a good job as representative of the Junior Park Rangers?
Join Kyler as he gets to know his new home and the other rangers who look after the park with him. You'll meet Lyla the owl, a Junior Wildlife Biologist; Jaden the wolf, a Junior Ecologist; Madison the sea lion, a Junior Interpreter; Gianna the vaquita, a Junior Lifeguard; and Tanaya the desert tortoise, a Junior Archaeologist.
The first book in the Junior Park Ranger Adventure Series, My First Day as a Junior Park Ranger, introduces the various jobs that local, state and national park employees have. Kids will learn what each of these important rangers do to care for the ecosystem and educate parks' visitors.
Giving Back: A dollar from each book sold will be donated to a nonprofit that protects and stewards one of the featured parks in our adventures. The nonprofit that will receive donations from My first day as a Junior Park Ranger will be Parks California.
