Publisher's Summary

A modern, practical, and inspiring guide to creating deep heart connections with kids by regularly creating new experiences and intentional adventures together.

Parents today complain of fragmented relationships with their kids. What parents yearn for - and their kids too - is deep, heart-to-heart connections. But how can parents compete with all the other noise fighting for their kids' attention?

The answer, says Greta Eskridge, is to break free from regular routines and familiar comforts of home to experience new places and adventures - even if those adventures go awry. From simply reading a book together to going on an overnight backpacking trip, activities together provide unique and crucial bonding opportunities. Adventuring Together highlights Greta's stories of doing just that, including: 

  • an array of ideas for outdoor and indoor ventures,
  • what to do when your finances are limited,
  • and how to adventure if your family can't hit the hiking trail or spend the night at a campground.

Giving listeners the tools to make adventures happen, Adventuring Together is a step-by-step guide for parents - whether in the city or the country - to start building connections today that will last a lifetime.

Could have been a blog post.

I have read other reviews that suggest this book could have been summed up in one blog post, and that it feels like the author is just adding padding in order to hit a word count. It’s exactly like that - there is so much repetition. I find it hard to believe this book was professionally edited.

This is a book for parents who have never ventured outside the house with a child; have never caught public transport, visited the public library or museum, never read a book out loud to their child, have never been on a hike or camping trip with kids. For the rest of us, this book is preaching to the converted and not a good use of your time.

The narrator needs urgent voice lessons - she has so much vocal tension it hurts my throat to listen to her. At the end of every (EVERY) sentence there is a downward inflection so extreme that pitch disappears and becomes a croak - not just jarring but very difficult to understood what is being said. I tried different speeds to try and make it more bearable but nothing helped.

Returning this one.

Inspiring book filled with tools

What a great book. This has given me the boost I need to keep going, keep showing up, keep investing in my kids. It will pay off....Covid has given me time, time to adventure and reconnect with my kids. We have pursued hiking and finding bioluminescence partly due to Greta’s influence. We have loved it!!! This book reminded me of the importance for it to invest some more, weekly....

It is and will be worth it.

Today I read the last chapters and I must admit that I was in tears. Her conclusion chapter touched many of my heart strings. I won’t give it away, but the full circle idea was precious! Have never seen my adult life as a mother with that lens. My future and priorities have shifted. Thank you Greta for pointing out what matters most. What relationships I need to invest in!

I initially was disappointed that Greta didn’t narrate her book, but honestly I don’t know how she would have read the Conclusion chapter without getting emotional. But, I actually enjoyed this narrator. She did a very good job!

Highly recommend this book for anybody wanting to adventure. She gives practical ideas and hope of how to start just where you are!

A big warm adventuring hug!

I have been adventuring with my kids for a long time now, well, my husband and I were doing it before kids! That being said, this might not be what someone in that category would typically search for, a book like this, but they would be wrong! this book is layered with so much, much more than helping people trying to start adventuring. It has already brought tears to my eyes, astounding aha moments, laughs, reminders of growth in many ways,, and memories of my family's adventures. This book is like a big warm hug to all those that yearn for adventures in all forms, shapes and sizes!!!!

Enjoyable Read

As a mother who loves adventure with her kids, I find this book relatable in a lot of ways. It was funny and heartwarming. It is also a good read for those who dare to seek new adventure or just simply connect with your kids in a different way.

Great Read For Family Adventures!

Better than a simple "How To" for adventuring with kids. Greta Eskridge and Chloe Dolandis fill this book with stories, encouragement and practical advice in overcoming adversity. It's a MUST READ for any adult that wants to get out and navigate the world with their little explorers.

Short and sweet but very inspiring!

I loved how Greta used her own story to stress the impact of adventure and connection with our kids. Lots of great ideas and inspiring stories. Loved this book.

Inspiring and simple!

What an inspiring way to share moments and connect with our children by the simple act of hiking together and creating adventures! A must read for mamas needing that extra push to get outside and explore! Especially love the book lists she suggests!
