Kids Yoga Stories
Author of six yoga-inspired children's books, including Sophia's Jungle Adventure
The Bay Area, with its profusion of state, regional, county, and national parks has more places to take kids than most urban areas. Laure Latham's new book explores these areas with kids in mind. An extended introduction tells you how to introduce kids to nature, and what to expect from various age groups. In all, she describes 100 hikes appropriate for toddler to teens. Like many guide books to the Bay area, this one divides the region by county lines. A wide variety of hikes are included from paved level routes suitable for strollers to more challenging explorations of wooded areas. Each hike includes a decent sketch map and detailed route description.
In all, I think this is a decent book and worth a read, especially for parents who want to make sure their little prodigies don't suffer from the increasingly common nature deficit disorder. But honestly, I admire anyone who is so dedicated to their kids that they are willing to take them along on their own break times. Especially toddlers. You need patience to hike with little ones. And eventually you will be rewarded for it. This book gives you a glimpse of those rewards to come.
