Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Do you ever wonder what you are going to do for your next family outing? Do you want to be spontaneous, while making lasting memories with your children? Are you trying to be creative while working with a shoestring budget? This book is for parents who want their children (Ages 2 to 10) to get the most out of their outings through educational adventures. The inexpensive adventures in this book are separated into chapters according to the specific adventure. The outings are generic enough that one may participate no matter where you live: going on a bus ride, to the airport, to a museum, on a nature walk, etc. Each chapter is divided into three sections: before you go, while in route, and follow-up activities. These three sections are divided again into specific age categories. Crafts, songs, games, activities, and book suggestions are included for each chapter. With this book, children and parents will have fun together and create lasting memories. 2003, Red Deer Press, Ages adult parent.

Candace Weisner is an avid outings enthusiast with a university degree in Recreation Administration. She has been developing programs for children and families for more than fifteen years, and she is a popular writer and workshop leader on families and recreation.

After a misspent youth on more than a few of Canada's northerly air force bases, Terry Leonard moved to central Alberta and took up graphic art and design. "It was a way," he explains,"to stimulate the circulation in my fingers." He is presently at work on an art project which, if it succeeds, will completely revolutionize the prairie art scene. Though he is unable to disclose much at this time, he says it involves cold beer, a moose, snowballs stockpiled in the refrigerator and visiting friends
