A for Adventure was written to empower children (in a fun way) to move, to get physical, to hike, bike and explore the natural world. The high energy A-Z rhyming verse format takes children through a wide range of activities from biking, canoeing and dancing to hiking, jumping, kayaking, riding and surfing – to ziplining! In addition to these activities are wider adventure concepts eg “E is for Exploring, you need not go far/because you’ll be exploring wherever you are…” and “Q is for quest, to bring out your best/often adventure can be quite a test…” (All verses are six line stanzas).

The main themes centre around three tenants: curiosity, creativity and resiliency which the authors believe are inherent in engaging in adventurous play. The book encourages discussion of topics that include facing your fears, protecting the planet and self-confidence to name a few.

The authors have partnered with Parks Canada to travel across Canada promoting parks facilities and family activities. They will also be doing school readings and speaking engagements. CBC will be lending support with local and regional publicity/media. Other partners include MEC, Helly Hansen and Chevy Canada. Social media on-going.
