Format: Paperback
As a busy Florida personal injury lawyer and father I come home after long days at the office to find my kids sitting behind their computers or texting. Weekends come and go and I try to squeeze in a workout or do chores. Before I know it, its Monday again. Spending time with my children or at least convincing them to spend time with me is virtually impossible.

So what options do we have? Movies, theme parks or shopping malls are full of stale air, crowds and are expensive. Try getting out of Disney without spending $500 a day.

Rob Bignell has the answer and it's simple, inexpensive and guaranteed to bring us closer to our children and nature. In "Hikes with Tykes" Mr. Bignell has written the definitive guide to hiking with children. He covers everything from where, when and how to do it safely and economically.

As the author of [...]a children's book designed to encourage and motivate kids to think of a career as a lawyer, I highly recommend that you purchase ""Hikes with Tykes to make sure that your future lawyer does not end up just sitting behind a desk.

Format: Paperback
It was fun and conversational -- not condescending in tone by handing down lots of strictures and commandments but instead reads like a good friend giving you some friendly suggestions.

It is also very thorough, offering lots of useful tips -- from selecting a trail to food you should carry, from clothing and equipment you'll need to treating injuries with first aid techniques specific to children, from which maps you'll need to activities you can enjoy in the trail with your children

The tips aren't just one guy's view of how to plan a hiking trip involving children but draws upon the experience of many young parents who love the outdoors an includes lots of anecdotes from hiking parents
