As if the Swamp Rabbit Trail wasn’t already perfect, Swamp Rabbit Station @Berea has released an interactive children’s book.
Mystery on the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail grabs your children, (and maybe you, if you’re a kid at heart), and hops on the trail with Officer Jack Rabbit to solve a mystery!
I decided I liked the book after flipping open to the first page. Jack Rabbit shares a list of rules to follow when using the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail. Parents, you will appreciate this part. I loved the life lessons towards the end of the story and you will too.
A section of the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail runs through Furman University. On the day we visited, the weather was perfect for scooters and story time!
Please note, JP (my pre-teen) son, hanging out in the swing because he is “too old for that book.” So, when thinking about your target audience, it’s definitely under twelve. The other three kiddos are four, seven and eight. They were hanging on every word.
Having said that, if you live in the area, it’s a book you should own, regardless of your age. Especially if you’re a fan of the trail.
Scattered along the trail, you will find the characters from the story. These three had the best time searching for them.
