A hiking guide and nature journal written specifically for young explorers, Ten Days in Acadia is the ideal way to introduce kids to the wonders of Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island in Maine. Hattie, a fictional 12-year-old gird, describes ten hikes and shares her vacation experiences, inspiring other young travelers to help plan their own family's adventures, make their own notes and sketches, and appreciate the joys of the natural world.
