  • A Mighty Girl's top picks of books for kids -- and their parents -- on the joys of outdoor play, exploration, and discovery!

    For many kids, there's nothing more fun than the chance to play outside!

The Mighty Girls in these stories have plenty of imagination, along with bundles of energy, and the end result is lots of outdoor fun.
