Editorial Reviews

"The Kids' Outdoor Adventure Book is a jam-packed, fun-filled delight. This book is for anyone who ever wanted to tap a maple tree, conquer a corn maze, make an ice sculpture or go owling-or better yet, do all those things and hundreds more with their families. Stacy and Ken have captured the joy of being alive and the rhythm of the seasons and the natural world. With this book as inspiration, all you need to do is open the door and go."

-Susan Sachs Lipman, author of Fed Up with Frenzy: Slow Parenting in a Fast-Moving World, and Social Media Director for the Children & Nature Network
