If you were a national park ranger, you'd spend every day in one of the most treasured places in America. You'd have an amazing job protecting animals, the environment, and our country's natural and historical heritage, from the wilds of Denali to the Statue of Liberty! 













Park rangers help take care of some of the most important places in the USA- our national parks- and in If I Were A Park Ranger, author Catherine Stier introduces young readers to all the fascinating, amazing, and necessary work park rangers engage in on a daily basis. 

From leading tours, educating guests, keeping wildlife safe, taking part in important scientific work, and more, park rangers do so many things to help maintain and protect our national parks, and If I Were A Park Ranger does a superb job of explaining these tasks to young readers in accessible and captivating ways.  Patrick Corrigan’s colorful, detailed, and engaging illustrations wonderfully bring various national parks to life and perfectly capture Stier’s text. 

A beautiful and enthralling celebration of park rangers and national parks, If I Were A Park Ranger is the perfect way to celebrate National Park Week and get young readers excited about America’s national parks and the people who take care of them! 




As a child, Catherine Stier wanted to be an author or park ranger. She visited her first national park as a baby and has been a fan ever since. She is the author of If I Were President and several other award-winning picture books, and has worked as a magazine writer, newspaper columnist, writing instructor, and children's literature researcher. She lives in San Antonio, Texas with her husband and volunteers with programs that connect families and children with nature and the outdoors.
