    My outdoor favorite memory was learning to row a boat with my dad.

    I loved when my daughters and I went to the frog pond at camp and saw all of the tadpoles swimming around in the water. A few days later, when we went back, there were baby frogs and some tadpoles showing signs of development. What an awesome experience to see the change from tadpole to frog. I don’t think my kids will ever forget it.

  3. I would love to win a copy of this book for my girls! THanks for the opportunity!

    Wow, these illustrations look incredible. I can only imagine the rich text that goes with them.

    My fondest outdoors memory is laying on my tummy next to the bubbling brook at my aunt’s cabin off the Pudge Sound. I would watch fish, crabs, and other sea life float by while the sun warmed my back. Such a special moment full of make believe adventures.
