Have you ever wondered what a ranger does? To find out what a ranger does then read Exploring Parks with Ranger Dockett. The author tells you about Ranger Dockett and shows what he does. Ranger Dockett takes children to the ponds and other places in the park. He teaches them about plants and other exciting things in nature. He gives tours and talks about the statues like Christopher Columbus. The special statues that I like are Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Hatter. I think you should read Exploring Parks with Ranger Dockett because it has fantastic pictures and writing.

My favorite part is when Ranger Dockett planted young trees in the New York City park. This is my favorite part because he helps nature thrive the city park. I thought this book was terrific because the author used great describing words and the photographer used exquisite photos. This book is exceptional because it is nonfiction and has photographs.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes nature.
