Six Books and Songs Perfect For Our Young Learners As They Visit & Celebrate National Parks This Summer!

As we get ready for summer vacations and lots of time outside, I am also thinking a lot about the celebrations in our National Parks with their 100th Birthday this year. 
You can read all about this in my post Happy 100th Birthday, National Park Service!  
We are planning a trip to Mesa Verde this summer.  I can't wait for Hagan to see it for the first time and to explore again myself.  I haven't been there for a long time.  
Our cabin is Granby is very close to the Rocky Mountains, so we will visit a few times this summer and fall.  But I also hope to get to the Great Sand Dunes and Black Canyon of the Gunnison, which will be all four National Parks here in Colorado.  

As we get ready for our summer in the mountains with family and friends, I turned to many of my favorite books and songs from Cantata Learning which include mountains.  

In the Spring 2016 season, there are five beautiful new books that you just have to check out when sharing our National Parks Birthday with young people in your life too. 
You will find I Love The Mountains, 
Home on the Range, Big Rock Candy Mountains, She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain, 
and On Top of Old Smokey as a few of your new favorites.

They will be the perfect books to share with your children this summer as you travel to different places, because remember every book has a song that goes with it.  You can get this music from the CD in the back of each book or stream it online from the Cantata Learning website.
You can also play each of these Cantata Learning titles from our National Parks Pinterest Board which is filled with ideas and resources too.
You will also love the Songs for Junior Rangers from the New Orlean Jazz NHP.  You can find these above on their Soundcloud.

I can't wait to see where our travels take us this summer in Colorado and other places.  It will be fun to plan these trip with Hagan as he explores his own learning through the parks too.
