"With this title nearby, even smartphone-obsessed kids will be clamoring to plan an outing . . . A lively and endearing book . . . The photographs offer a work of art beyond their instructional nature. Enthusiastically recommended." - Library Journal

"Nature and imagination are a potent combination, exposing children to all sorts of delights, and this book provides endless remedies to the indoorsiness of urban life." --Publishers Weekly

"You can see why Hattie Garlick has written this book, her love for the outdoors and her passion for developing children's imagination are quite obvious."

"Who knew that a little pond dipping could be so much fun?"
