Just in time for summer comes a definitive manual on taking advantage of everything the outdoors has to offer. Tornio and Keffer encourage kids to appreciate the subtleties of nature in a fast-paced, technology-saturated world. The manual is divided into four chapters, one for each season. Each chapter has its own checklist of activities, from the obvious, such as building a snowman, to the more inspired, such as creating a DIY winter wreath. Activities include recipes, trip destinations, crafts, games, and more. Each activity is measured on an adventure scale, so readers can decide just how bold they would like to be. The overarching goal is unstructured, imaginative play that will foster an appreciation for fresh air and nature throughout the year. This guidebook can be considered a sort of response to the overscheduled media environment that most young people find themselves immersed in, but its approach is undaunting, imploring kids to simply get outside a bit each day. Grades 3-8. --Erin Anderson
This is the perfect book to draw children (3-13 years of age) away from computers, electronic games and television. What is its secret? Colorful illustrations for one. A whole book full of fun ideas for another. And then there are those checkboxes. Checkboxes? Indeed! Kids love them. They'll be keen to check off the boxes and to run outdoors for the next adventure. Whether you live in the city or in the country, The Outdoor Adventure Book is chock full of things to try...and children won't even need a computer to try them.

Big mistake! As others have noted, this book may be useful for outdoors-impaired city slickers. But chances are, if you have become familiar with any slightly outdoorsy activities in you life, you will find the suggestions made by the authors essentially useless. I had been hoping to at least find some creative new recipes, crafts, games, activities, SOMETHING I had never thought of before. Alas, there was nothing interesting or novel to be found in this book, and I looked thoroughly from cover to cover.
Literally everything in there is the most basic "duh!" kind of things to do outside. I guess if you've never left the limits of a paved city environment, you might need to be told how to catch butterflies, make snow angels, or collect leaves. My family however, are expert outdoorsers by this book's standards. I'm pretty sure my oldest kid had done everything in here by the time she was five...
Seriously, if you and/or your kids have ever ventured past your own sidewalk more than once, don't bother with this one. If you really need some new ideas for having fun in nature, do what I did and just look it up on Google or Pinterest. It's a few bucks cheaper and will likely give you much better results anyway...
