“It's a big world out there, and youngsters eager to do some exploring will want to check out this title [Hiking] in the Great Outdoors series. Diverse, happy families are pictured walking park and city paths, while some more experienced hikers are shown blazing their own trails on backcountry hikes in national parks. Safety, appropriate gear, and snacks are all addressed, as are a variety of hikes readers might embark upon. The clean layout features a color photo on every spread, often bordered by colored blocks containing a hiking fact or question, which is answered on the opposite page. Short sentences make the content accessible to struggling readers, and highlighted vocabulary is defined in a glossary. With its emphasis on enjoyment, this book makes sure readers set out on the right foot. ”—Julia Smith
