Finish book #1 and ready to dive into book #2? You can grab everything you need here! (JUST starting out the series? Don't buy the books separately, save on a bundle of both HERE!)

Mayhem in Mt. Rainier National Park

"Theo and Titus Sterling were given a quest to save the National Parks by a nameless stranger shrouded in mystery. Now, as they are exploring Mt. Rainier National Park, will they encounter the stranger again? With the aid of their curious spectacles, the Sterling twins must escape a protective mama bear, survive an erupting volcano, and follow the clues to find the next piece of the puzzle."

Age Range: We've designed this series to be an excellent read aloud for the whole family. Kids ages 12 and under will enjoy it most (although we've heard from teens who loved listening in too!). The books are early chapter books and are good for reading independently for grades 2-3 and above.

To homeschool families: We are a very Charlotte Mason family here. We didn't want to produce twaddle. We wanted a series that would enrich and challenge your kids. So you'll notice more advanced vocabulary and nature concepts - this is on purpose! We want these books to be a jumping off point for further research and education, all done in a fun and exciting way! 😍


Reviews from Real Families: 

"We loved this book so much! It's the perfect blend between adventure, learning, and FUN! I highly doubt we will visit even two national parks in our lifetime but luckily we can live vicariously through the Sterling family;)" - Mary and daughter Juliet- Age 5 


"Sterling Spectacles is just as entertaining as Boxcar Children, but with an imaginative sci-fi twist." - Amanda Carruthers, kids ages 5, 3, & 3


"My boys really enjoyed this book! It was fun, mysterious, funny, all-around enjoyable. They learned a bit about Yosemite National Park without the book being too "boring" to keep their attention. They really enjoyed it, and they can't wait for the second adventure!" - The Winters Family, kids ages 13 & 11


"This book is written in such a realistic, fun way that we were able to put ourselves into the story. My 9-year-old didn’t think of the book as an “educational book” even though we learned a lot. Instead he views it as an adventure book for kids." - Maria C and Cameron (age 9)


"We loved the book. As a new homeschooling mom I loved how easy it was to sneak in some learning during our little summer break. I enjoyed the book just as much as my kids and can’t wait for the next one." - Rochele P, Mia (age 6) & Micah (age 11)


"Every homeschooler needs this book! It balances education and adventure perfectly! My kids begged to go check out more books on Yosemite from the library when we were done! We can’t wait to read the whole series to learn all about the national parks! Every little adventurer needs this book!" - The Asher Family, kids ages 4 and 6


"The Sterling Spectacles was a fun read, with a unique concept, and lots of educational tidbits woven into the storyline. My kids loved listening to the story, and one said it was his favorite book! As a mom, I really appreciate having wholesome, yet fun books to read to my kids, and we are all excited for the next book in the series!" - Lindsay R, Nathan (age 8) & Jacob (age 5)


What is the Adventure Guide? 

The truly magical thing about this book series is how it blends a fun and quirky fiction story with learning and sparking a curiosity about the world in your kids. You will learn about how the National Parks were formed, the nature, science, and history of each National Park and more! 

So when you are reading, you are going to wonder what is real and what is fiction in the series. You are going to wonder if there really are bears inside Mt. Rainier. You might want to adventure over the bridge that the Sterling Family goes over, but is it a real bridge? Did John Muir actually scale the mountain? And did all those events really happen? 

You might even want to visit that park for yourself one day and want to know all the best tips and hikes with kids. Well, we've got you covered.

Whether you are a homeschooling family, or you just have some curious kids who love to learn, our PDF Adventure Guide is what you need. 

The Adventure Guide for each book gives you all of that. We will dive into the formation of each park, sorting through the fact and fiction of each book, and learn more exciting things about the flora and fauna of each park. You'll even learn more about the growth of our great country in the process. We will also have a section in the book for those visiting the park in person with all of our tips for visiting.
