But I’m guessing that because you’re reading this review, you’ve got kids plus the itch to go hiking with them. Or maybe you’re a new parent who feels you have to give up hiking while your children are small. Well, I think you’ve found the perfect book, for two reasons.
The first reason: how easy it is to find answers and encouragement in the eight different sections. As a hiking mom herself, Rebecca anticipates the questions that are important to parents. She goes beyond the expected “what to wear and eat” dilemma to cover topics such as how to carry your kid(s) and how to adjust your adult expectations to kid sized goals. Useful stuff!
The other thing that really stood out for me in this book: its sincere desire to show you how to plan safe, fun family outdoor time. A hiking trail gives unscripted opportunities for kid-size bites of awe, curiosity, adventure and exercise. All of these are becoming things of the past so if you value them, use this book as motivation to plan some family hikes on established trails in your area. And if the future of hiking trails matters to you, here’s a wonderful way to guarantee there will be voices in the next generation to advocate for them.
Many thanks to Rebecca for this straightforward “how to” guide for parents and grandparents. She writes as if she’s sitting next to you, sharing her friendly, honest, and practical tips. No fuss, no overwhelm, just useful information to get you started hiking with kids.
