In the summer of 1871, a young painter named Thomas Moran joined a team of scientists heading for the untamed land called "the Yellowstone." Tom had never ridden a horse or slept under the stars before, but the paintings he created on his journey from city boy to seasoned explorer would lead to the founding of America's first national park. Follow his journey in this week's 4 to 7 age group pick, Yellowstone Moran, then visit the Read for My Summer page for a Yellowstone scavenger hunt and an outdoor art show activity from ReadWriteThink!

Ted Geisel loved to doodle from the time he was a kid. He had an offbeat, fun-loving personality. He often threw dinner parties where guests wore outrageous hats! And he donned quirky hats when thinking up ideas for books such as his classic The Cat in the Hat. Who Was Dr. Seuss? brings an amazingly gifted author-illustrator to life. When you finish the book head over to our program page for a ReadWriteThink activity and Dr. Seuss games.
