Description

The Hike is a must-have for budding scientists, best friends, and all adventurers in preschool and kindergarten.

A plucky and sweet adventure story, The Hike celebrates how fun and rewarding it is to explore nature in your own backyard!

Three intrepid young female explorers set out to conquer the outdoors in their local forest, enjoying the process in their own different ways. Wren brings a sketchbook and a flag, El brings a poetry notebook, and Hattie brings feathers (and holds Bean the dog’s leash). They get lost and use maps to find their way. They draw wildlife, spot deer tracks, and see a deer before it startles and disappears, all before they finally and joyfully reach their destination.

Filled with lyrical language that captures the majesty of the natural world, coupled with a fun narrative, this spirited picture book tells the story of the girls' friendship—and their tribulations and triumphs in the great outdoors.

ARTFUL AND EDUCATIONAL: The book includes Wren's sketchbook that highlights discoveries the kids make along the trail, plus a glossary, scientific backmatter, and abundant labels of the flora and fauna of a Western woodland throughout for learning about various plants and animals.

A WONDERFUL GIFT: This adorable book makes a perfect present for the littlest nature lovers and families who love the outdoors.
