About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

100 Days of Adventure: Nature Activities, Creative Projects, and Field Trips for Every Season by Greta Eskridge

100 Days of Adventure: Nature Activities, Creative Projects, and Field Trips for Every Season

Turn off the screen and turn on the creativity as second-generation homeschooling mom Greta Eskridge shares 100 hands-on learning activities for kids that will connect and enrich your family through adventures, small and big.

Have a meteor slumber party, attend a symphony concert, take a hike in the rain, preserve colorful fall leaves, and make nettle pesto as children explore a love of nature and venture into the great, wide, real world. From backyard bugs to farmer's market veggies, children will unplug from electronics; explore the world; and learn about nature, art, music, and themselves through STEAM projects and new experiences.

100 Days of Adventure will spark curiosity in 6- to 10-year-olds with

  • Indoor and outdoor seasonal activities, projects, experiments, crafts, recipes, and field trips
  • Free and low-cost activities, with options for different kinds of groups and locations
  • Step-by-step directions, nature journal prompts, tips, and checklists
  • Beautiful photos and helpful illustrations

Children can bond with parents and siblings, learn new skills with individual investigations, or explore with friends in an educational or homeschool group with this full-color activity book. Also included is a note to parents with encouraging start-here guidance on growing a family culture of curiosity and adventure.

Whether your family is looking for fun activities for school breaks at home, road trip vacations, or everyday ways to learn together, this collection of interactive educational activities will help your kids get creative, get into nature, and get closer to each other.

Don't miss Greta's essential guide for parents on building a connected and loving family through exploration, Adventuring Together: How to Create Connections and Make Lasting Memories with Your Kids.

Available for Purchase on AMAZON


In today's society, it's very easy for children to depend on cable television, social media, and YouTube for their entertainment. This doesn't have to be! Author Greta Eskridge has joined with illustrator Emily Paik to create a book that deserves to be used again and again. There are 100 ideas in 100 Days of Adventure, and these suggestions are for projects that can be done during one of the four seasons. Some are simple and need no advance planning, and others will take some work, but all of them are guaranteed F-U-N. Some projects are costly but most of them are for families on a budget, such as hiking, rock collecting, a nature scavenger hunt, and painting snow with food coloring. Doing them as a family will create priceless memories, and best of all, children will be learning while they're having fun!

My eight-year-old granddaughter begins her summer vacation in a few weeks so I'm thrilled that this book is available. The illustrations are perfect, the directions are easy to understand, and there are projects for every age group, including adults! Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of 100 Days of Adventure: Nature Activities, Creative Projects, and Field Trips for Every Season. It will be some of the best money you've ever spent because this book is an absolute treasure trove of fun and educational projects!

I received a copy of this book from FrontGate Media. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
