Let’s Go on a Hike

By Mary Preble

The sun is shining, the sky is blue.
Let’s go on a hike, just me and you.
Water in a jug, lunch in a pack,
not too sure when we will be back.

Take a child on a hiking adventure. Enjoy the colorful artwork that keeps the young reader looking for the next animal, bug or bird.
