When the founder of Hike it Baby, Shanti Hodges, came out with her new book this summer titled Hike it Baby: 100 Awesome Outdoor Adventures with Babies and Toddlers, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.  I just knew this book would be a great resource for all new parents-- from seasoned mountaineers to new adventurers. Luckily, I was given a review copy in exchange for sharing my honest opinion of the book.  After enjoying it so much myself, I’ve decided to do a book giveaway for my readers, so at least one of you can treasure this book for free!

This book oozes with the Hike it Baby organization’s community feel an...

If you're looking for children's books about composting, you have come to the right place. 

I'm obsessed with children's books!  I have a collection that won't fit on the shelves in my house, and I'm always eager to share a favorite children's book with a friend-- child or adult.  I've already promised that any learning activities I post will be high quality, and this promise extends to literature. 

Here's my current list of composting favorites, which can be used for a variety of reasons:

  • Teaching children about composting

  • When you start using a compo...

While I usually review children's books, here is one for the adults!  I've been telling everyone I meet about this book, so I figured it's finally time I tell you, too.  Happy reading!

If winter and spring kept you inside more than you’d like, you will love the inspiring and insightful book There’s No Such Thing as Bad Weather by Linda Akeson McGurk.  In this book, Swedish-born McGurk reflects on her six month trip back to Sweden with her American-raised children, analytically comparing childhood in the two countries.  The result is a truly optimistic read for parents concerned about screen time, over-testing, over-sche...

If you're looking for books to celebrate Earth and teach about protecting the earth, you have come to the right place.  I'm obsessed with children's books!  I have a collection that won't fit on the shelves in my house, and I'm always eager to share a favorite children's book with a friend-- child or adult.  I've already promised that any learning activities I post will be high quality, and this promise extends to literature.  Here's my list of Earth Day favorites, which can be used all year 'round to celebrate our planet.

Who owns the earth?  This is a question for the ages.  People fight over invisible property borders all over the world and have done so for thousands of years.  Humans assume people own the earth, but somewhat hypocritically, they also call it “Mother Earth”.  The earth is our “mother”, yet we see ourselves as better than it.  Would you treat your mother the way people often treat the earth!?

No, I’m not suggesting that we all hug it out and eliminate countries and laws and rather tend the earth communally.  That would be a nice picture, but I’m a realist! 

We do, however, have to start thinking about the...
