Forget about the kids, I think I'm going to try it.
My local library owns it but it's not due back until Nov. 7th.
Over the years I've found the childrens department of my local libray to be a great resourch.

Default 2 thumbs up!

"The trail is a huge long thing. It stretches all the way from Maine to Georgia. That's practically all of America, if your going from top to bottom. (Well, duh, I guess that's why they made it like that.) Anyway, that huge long thing is so much bigger than you are, and bigger than anything you can imagine, that at first hiking it seems impossible. But when you're actually walking on it, you realize that this whole huge thing is just step after step after step, oops don't trip on that root, hmm wonder what that ugly plant is called, ouch that bug bit me. Step after step, some up, some down, some easy, some hard. That's how you get it done. One little bit at a time."


That was a paragraph from this delightful book. Being a children's book I got it finished in 2 sittings, and have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. Other than inaccuracies, like saying the Appalachian Trail is blazed with blue paint, the book reminded me of what a kid might think at times. Try it, you'll like it.
