First Tracks is a book for kids that (hopefully) inspires them to spend time outside. First Tracks tells the tale of a kid’s ski trip to a mountain resort and all of the adventures that a kid can have on a ski vacation. If you want your kids to ski or snowboard, a copy of First Tracks might be the inspiration they need to get them excited about snow sports and keep them wanting to return for more downhill fun.
I have lived in a ski resort for 30 years and know skiing and snowboarding very well. Jeff Teaford, the illustrator of First Tracks, has been a children’s ski instructor in the Ski Schools of Aspen/Snowmass for many years. First Tracks has been around since 2004 and has been reprinted four times.
The Yellowstone Kid continues to stoke the outdoor inspirations of your kids by taking them on a Yellowstone vacation. Yellowstone National Park is our greatest treasure and its denizens conjure up visions of wild places. Even if you never visit Yellowstone, you are richer just by knowing that it is there.
In The Yellowstone Kid, Suzie Shane visits this grand land of volcanoes and bears with the same wide-eyed wonder as she had in First Tracks. There are many things to learn and watch out for, especially bears. She really wants to catch a glimpse of our furry friends and is intent on searching for one. Will she see the bear? Get your copy of The Yellowstone Kid to find out.
