Books and Guides for Kids



As I relaxed in the heat and watched my daughter catch salamanders in
our local pond this weekend, I realized that yes, we are really in
the middle of our short summer in the Upper Valley. But like any other
New Englander, I realized that the fall months with their cool days
and changing colors are not far off. I started prioritizing
activities for what’s left of time off from school, and at the top of
the list is spending time OUTDOORS with the kids. There are many
ponds, lakes, brooks, hidden swimming holes and trails to explore in
our community, as wells as the wonders of our yards. I’ve listed some
wonderful nature stories for kids to get us all thinking about
exploring outside, as well as some guides and activity books to provide
some ideas for outdoor activities.
