How to help young people enjoy nature and discover fun Fall adventures.
Hello and Welcome from Duke and Daisy, they are your kids guide to fun adventure with books, nature, and life discoveries. So, grab your kids and come along with Duke and Daisy. Each week you and your kids will find new and exciting experiences from Duke and Daisy.
This week Duke and Daisy are sharing ideas about fall. The days are getting shorter, parents are getting busier, your kids have mountains of homework, and the air is getting chilly. With the temperatures slipping into cooler degrees, it can take some planning with the layers of clothes to ready your children for open air time. But it’s worth the time and effort.
You and your children benefit from the open air time, and you all feel happier. Fresh air may boost your immune system, which helps kids stay healthier. There’s another plus, since getting your children outdoors and into nature promotes creativity and imagination.
For your kid’s adventure in the outdoors and nature, Duke and Daisy have the following suggestions to help children grow and channel their outdoor, nature inspiration with these creative fun activities.

Autumn Eternal (The Fantastical Stories Told Beneath the Willow Tree) by Kyle Bagsby
Of all the places to grow up, Kip Carringer spent his youth in the secluded little town of Arno. Strange things were common there but no one seemed to notice, except for Kip that is. There was a witch living in the woods and all year long it was Autumn. And as if that’s not strange enough, all the birds around the town and through the woods mooed like cows, instead of chirping or squawking like birds are supposed to do. Kip was determined to uncover the secrets of the town, all while trying to convince his best friend Marleigh that he wasn’t crazy. However, unknown to Kip, the adventure was waiting for him just around the corner. An adventure that would be filled with pie stealing creatures and a dark, dark looming shadow
