Kids’ Book of the Month

WinterKids Book of the Month Hiking Day

Hiking Day

by Anne Rockwell

Most appropriate for ages: preschool thru 2nd grade

Follow along on the adventure as a young girl goes on an autumn hike with her family. Throughout the story, the main character describes every step of her experience – from preparing for her hike, to selecting a trail on the map, to observing terrain changes, to reaching the summit, spotting animals along the way. This simple and sweet story would be fantastic to read before taking children on their first hike, or to open a discussion about their experiences while hiking- to practice making “text-to-self connections”, and elementary teachers- it is a great example for personal narrative writing!

Rainy Day Kids Adventure Book

by Steph Scott and Katie Akers

Most appropriate for ages: 3-99

We LOVE this book! Rainy Day Adventure Book was written by two moms and is full of unique, interactive outdoor activities for kids (with adult supervision). The activities are about weather, they require a simple supply list, and engage all senses! They are divided into three sections: rain, wind, and snow. Fun and memorable songs/ jingles about nature, weather, safe practices while outdoors, and more are beautifully weaved throughout the book. Another bonus – their guide to creating an “Out Pack” backpack helps make it even easier to get out the door for these adventures.
