Welcome to Take a Walk®Books!
Here you can buy our books signed by author Jane Kirkland and learn how to use our books at home as well as in the classroom. We have a special section just for kids and one for teachers where resources include lesson plans, documentation correlating our books to state standards, free field notes pages, a free book (Take a Cloud Walk) and free photos that you can use in your school projects (not for resale).
Whether you’re reading our contest news, checking our calendar, watching our videos, or reading our blogs, we hope you enjoy all we have to offer. Please drop us a line to tell us how you found us, your experiences with our books, and what you’ve seen in nature!
