Hey, with all the discussion of the new backpacking babies and such (plus an encounter with a lousy book on hiking an camping for kids), I hauled out and spiffed up the little picture book I shared with some here years ago.  k

The paperback is still pending (I'm waiting on my proof copy), but you can get the eBook from https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/318374 for 99 cents.  

This was supposed to be a few hours work, but I've spent about a week getting the files right!  Oh well.  I just wanted to share something fun for the kiddies.

Can't get it to let me post the cover picture, even though it's only 1 MB.  Go figure.

My hiking pre-schooler needs this book for sure!  Is it better for you if I order it from the linked site, or from you directly?

Tarol, love the idea.  I'll have to look into it (when I get home.  Currently in Banff, headed to Jasper, done with one pack trip [still with those boys, though bigger!] and headed to another in a couple if days].

Sent you mail.  It is on Amazon if you want, but I'll send a copy when I get home for the same price, and with my invaluable signature :)
