About the Author:

Martha Zschock lives with her family on Cape Cod. A former elementary school teacher, she was inspired by field trips with her students to write her first book, Journey Around Cape Cod from A to Z. Martha's journey has continued with more books in the series from other places including, Boston, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Chicago, Maine, Nantucket, and New York. Martha and her family enjoy the journey of creating the series, which includes lots of traveling, writing, painting, and meeting lots of wonderful children and adults along the way. Martha often collaborates on projects with her twin sister, Heather, an art director and freelance designer. When her twin sister had a baby, Martha began writing and painting for a new "Hello!" series of board books which take the youngest explorers on journeys to several locations such as Florida, Brooklyn, Washington DC, Boston, Yellowstone, and America.

Heather Zschock is a professional book designer who lives in New York City. Because of her remarkable design sense and professional experienceóand her love for her hometownóHeather is the perfect coauthor with her twin sister, Martha, of Journey Around New York from A to Z. Heather is also the coauthor of the Journey Around Cape Cod Cookbook and the designer of all the books in the Journey Around series.

To celebrate the centennial of the national parks, children's author-illustrator Martha Day Zschock has created Journey Around Our National Parks. Discover the fascinating story of the preservation of over 400 special places in our country, including Yellowstone, the Great Smoky Mountains, Mount Rushmore, the Florida Everglades, and the historic sites in our nation's capital. Designed to introduce kids to our national parks as if they are on a field trip, Zschock's beautiful, whimsical, and detailed illustrations and meticulously researched history, enhanced by quotes from prominent nature lovers, will captivate children of all ages, from the youngest lap-reader to the adults who read to them. The book has been aimed at the fourth grader, helping to support the "Every Kid in a Park" initiative, but is suitable for children ages 6 and up.
