Indirect Observations blog gives thumbs up to Hikes guidebook

The blog Indirect Observations gave a positive review to my latest book, Hikes with Tykes: Games and Activities on Monday. Writes Indirect Observations author Catherine Way, a mother and former geophysicist, “I gave one of the activities a test drive at a recent trip to the Botanic Gardens. We pretended to be on a wildlife expedition. We took our binoculars and a magnifying glass and tracked birds, geckos and insects through the rainforest walk and Botanic Gardens playground. Hundreds of questions later and after taking an hour to get through a short walk, I know that preschoolers love this activity and that it is not the activity to chose if you have a longer distance to walk!” Way’s blog, Indirect Observations, is about learning passionately throughout your life, sharing that passion with others and passing on a love for learning to our children. Hikes with Tykes: Games and Activities is available for purchase online at Amazon.com.
