I have been collecting passport stamps for many years but I recently purchased the new large passport book (I had the small one) and I wanted to fill it with the passport stamps of all the places we have been since we married 43 years ago. So I looked through the yearly stamp packages and ordered the ones I needed for all the national places we had been. So much excitement when the 11 packages arrived and I could go through them. So much fun to find each stamp and stick it in the passport book. I only wish I had owned this larger book when I was able to get the passport ink stickers at each of the national parks and historical places when we visited them. Now I will need to visit the many different places that I have stamps for so I can stick them in my passport book after visiting. The stamps are very pretty and it is amazing to think that there are so many national parks, monuments, historical sites and preserves that one can visit to learn about the history of our country.

I recently purchased several years’ worth of these wonderful stamps. I am leaving the same 5-star review for all the sets I purchased because every single one of them is deserving of the highest grade possible. It was a joy to sit down, relax with a cup of coffee, and dedicate many pleasant hours putting our family's Passport Explorer together. Passport stamps are beautiful, each depicting a scene from one of many special locations in this great land of ours. Flipping through the pages, as I found the right place for each stamp, brought back so many happy memories! The Passport Stamps are also an excellent way to learn about our culture, our history, and our geography. These sets, along with the Passport itself, are great souvenirs and worthwhile entertainment for young and old alike. Many thanks to the Park Service for this awesome product!
