  • 📚Our choice for kids' book of the month, great for ages: preschool through 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!⁣

  • THANK YOU WinterKids friends and supporters! You helped us make our 2018-2019 year one of the best yet! We launched our WinterKids App for mobile phones to help more kids try new winter sports, doubled the number of schools and students who participated in the WinterKids Winter Games, and hosted families at over 40 winter events in Maine and New Hampshire. Thank you for making winter more fun and accessible for over 22,000 children! Our newly released annual report shares all the details of the impact we've made together. You can find it via the link in our bio!⁣
⁣
Now, it's time for us to ask you to help make a difference again this 2019-2020 season. Here are two ways you can help (links for both are in our bio):⁣
⁣
1) DONATE TODAY: at winterkids.org/donate-fund. When you make a tax deductible donation to the WinterKids fund, you are supporting effective, evidence-based solutions to reducing childhood obesity and the loss of connection to the natural environment. Your contribution is much more than charity: it's an investment in the future of our children and outdoor heritage.⁣
⁣
2) VOLUNTEER: join the fun, make new friends, and feel great knowing you've made a difference. Your time is an excellent investment in the future of our children!⁣
