I love this one because it's a mix of nature journal and kids just having a good time on the trail.

We LOVED this book! A story about three sisters who take a hike to reach the summit and along the way discover the many beauties of the forest and its creatures. We loved the instructions on how to make a 'berry basket' and have since made one and been wild berry picking. The illustrations are captivating and there is always a new discovery in the pictures during a re-read!

For the budding naturalist inside every child, young and old. This book illustrates and labels the journey of three girls and a dog who discover, observe and record the plants, animals and other natural wonders on their way to the top of a mountain. And once they get there, they each mark the importance of the event in their own personal way. Lovely! You and your children will be inspired to take a hike (perhaps up Stone Mountain?) and come up with your own way to celebrate nature after reading this book.
