This Month's Issue

To assist you in packing the most into the sun-soaked days ahead, we assembled a bunch of fun ideas and a feast of festivals and fairs into our Play List. And we definitely recommend putting a hike or two on the itinerary! Author Susan Elderkin shares her trail-tested tips for getting your kids to love (or at least like) hiking.

The lead-up to our annual back-to-school transition may be particularly anxiety-inducing for many this year. Our feature makes a reassuring case for several promising ways that our year of distance learning has impacted lasting change in education.

A smooth BTS transition results from advance planning — to help, we present some smart solutions for establishing a routine that will set the family up for success this fall.
