What if you got outside every day, and what if you could get your kids to come along? It sounds modest, but the effects, as dynamic outdoor spokesperson Rebecca Cohen herself can testify, are profound.

Simple and inspiring, this book is bursting with hundreds of easy ways to get your family out into nature a little bit every day.
