A Day In The Park: Ryan Hutton’s Prehistoric Adventure
By Matt Weiss
Jan. 15, 2016
A Day in the Park is about exploration and adventure in the context of the everyday life of 13 year olds. I’m hopeful this book will help develop that sense of wonder that all kids have and help them understand that that wonder is what drives science.
In the book, a group of middle school age boys take interest in a classroom science experiment. Their teacher tells them that they can expand on that interest if they go out into a preserve near the school and investigate on their own. When the boys do that, they discover something completely unexpected. I say unexpected because the main character, Ryan, literally trips over this thing and falls flat on his face in the process. Their adventure evolves into a research project driven by their own curiosity. It allows the boys to learn about their town going back to prehistoric times as the last ice age ended. They get to experience firsthand a full blown scientific investigation aided by a university professor who happens to be a friend of Ryan’s family.
