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.

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!!!!

Inspired, encouraged and ready to go!

Because of this book, I have already started to adventure alone with my kids. We have always done adventure as a family, but I held back from going by myself. I see the value of this regular investment in our kids and in myself too. I can do things that scare me and push me out of my comfort zone. I'm looking forward to our regular adventures together.

Misleading

The facts and story are often good but it’s really annoying how much she injects religion in the book. This would be fine if the book description mentioned how much religion is in the book but the description in no way mentions religion.

Inspiring

Inspiring book on how to switch one’s lifestyle to being an adventurer.

People need to be aware that this isn’t a “how to hike/camp with kids” book. Other people do this well. The author in this book does well with helping a fearful parent slowly overcome anxieties around hiking/camping/museums, giving suggestions through her own personal failures and successes.

I feel uplifted and more confident. It is exactly what I needed in this moment.

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.
