Format: Paperback
Trekking on a Trail provides basic hiking information and suggestions for simple activites. A substantial portion of this book is devoted to safety information and lists of gear hikers should carry or wear. Much of this information, such as what sort of socks to wear and how to buy a pack, seems more aimed at parents than kids.
The book includes...
a section on stretches to use when warming up for a hike,
a set of suggestions for gear, clothing and food to carry,
a section on different kinds of packs,
a simple map reading lesson,
advice on staying found, what to do when lost, and what to pack for an emergency and for first aid,
a section on reading the weather,
a section on what bugs and plants to avoid,
a few suggestions for trail snacks,
a handful of suggested activities for children on hikes, such as making a hiking journal, hiking stick and skipping rocks on water.

Fran Lee provides colorful and charming illustrations throughout that may make the some of the otherwise dry material in the book more appealing to children.

I love this author's series and have all the books. They are really well illustrated, the color is good. The information is basic and good for kids/adults to use together. Its a great beginning book for young families.

I purchased this book for my daughter (9) after we went on a fun hike together. It has some good tips and easy-to-read chapters. Most importantly to me, it allows her to take part in (or take charge of) the planning for our mother-daughter hikes. It was exactly what I was hoping for.

I bought this book for my niece in California as a Christmas gift. She camps quite often with her family, friends or Girl Scout troop.

Just finished this book. It is a little basic but my kids loved reading it with me. It does a good job of explaining basic needs and gives a few good activities to start the kids out
