Perfect for children of school age.

Wow! My 16 year old daughter was inspired to camp, become an active conservationist, and talked us into visiting Glacier National Park before the Glaciers melted! [Which we did in August 2010.] She developed an interest in some of the music used in the series, and learned to play it on her violin.
