What Happened to Mount St. Helens?: Book Review

The Case of the Missing Mountain by Kim Jones
4 stars

The Case of the Missing Mountain is a fun and engaging way for children to learn Creation Science. The name of the book’s title refers to the events of Mount St. Helens. The pages follow two mystery rangers, Jen and Jack, as they find clues to unravel the mystery of what happened to the mountain.

Your child goes along on this activity-filled journey to pick up facts and solve puzzles. Here’s a list of the activities: crossword puzzles, unscrambling words, code breakers, science experiments, eye spy, mazes, and so much more. There are many photographs and creative designs nestled within the pages. After your child has completed everything, they will find volcano facts, Bible verses, jokes, and more at the end of the book. And there’s a special reward waiting at thenaturetour.com for solving seven of the mysteries, two Rockin’ Ranger Activities, and two Mystery Ranger Missions.

Kim is the perfect author for this, since she has a wealth of information on parks. I recommend The Case of the Missing Mountain for families who homeschool their children and teach Creationism. I was homeschooled, and I would’ve enjoyed something like this to pour through. It could be applied with learning geology, America’s parks, and nature.

Since I don’t have any children of my own, I plan on giving this copy to my nieces – who are homeschooled. I think they’ll both like it. My oldest niece wants to be a park ranger so this will be great for her.

Thanks so much for your creative review of "The Case of the Missing Mountain!" Hope your nieces enjoy the book! Being a park ranger is a wonderful job! It's great that your niece gets all the Creation training possible before she enters that field. (:

In Christ,
