¡Una aventura que te inspirará a salir al aire libre!

Un padre quiere pasar el día viendo fútbol en la tele, pero su hija le recuerda que ha prometido subir con ella en una caminata–hasta la cima. A medida que los dos suben, el entusiasmo de la niña se vuelve contagioso. Abundan los contratiempos y las sorpresas pero también las vistas impresionantes.

Este divertido cuento de Baptiste Paul y Jacqueline Alcántara —con ilustraciones vibrantes y una pizca de palabras criollas que provienen directamente de las montañas Pitons— captura la maravilla del camino, la relación especial entre un padre y su hija y el poder de una experiencia compartida.

Take a hike with this father-daughter adventure that’s sure to inspire you to get outside.

When a young child reminds her dad about the hike they planned, her father is hesitant —To the tippy top? It’s a great day to watch futbol (soccer). But as the two climb on, her enthusiasm is contagious. Filled with setbacks, surprises, and stunning views, this warm and humorous story highlights in vivid colors the bonding power of a shared experience. A list of creatures at the end prompts a second look for keen-eyed readers to make discoveries of their own.

Baptiste Paul and Jacqueline Alcántara (co-creators of The Field) have teamed up again! Baptiste’s humorous and tender text, with a sprinkling of Creole words straight from the Pitons, and Jacqueline Alcántara’s vibrant and evocative illustrations capture the wonder and emotions experienced on the trail and the special relationship between a parent and a child.
