The A for Adventure movement aims to inspire kids, families and people to get out and explore the world around them! We want to inspire the next generation to get outside and play, creating a foundation for a happier, healthier life… and a better life for our planet too!

The ‘A is for Adventure’ book is a rhyming A-Z children’s book for kids under 10 (and adults young at heart). The book goes through the alphabet, each letter a different activity or lesson, accompanied with incredible illustrations to ignite the imagination. The book is also meant to educate, and focuses on hard and soft skills for children to get into the healthy habit of adventure.

The book is printed at Taylor Printing Group in Frederiction, New Brunswick. It is published by A for Adventure Inc.

‘A is for Adventure’ is a self published book by A for Adventure Inc. In May 2015, we launched a crowd-sourcing campaign to help raise funds to print the book. The campaign was successful thanks to over 400 individual pledges to pre-order the book. Here is the video for the kickstarter campaign:


Here are a couple examples from the book:

“A is for adventure, as you will come to see.
Like hiking, or biking or climbing a tree.
Or taking a plane to a faraway land,
or a trip to the beach just to play in the sand.
Yes, A is for Adventure as you come to know,
so get ready, get set, get ready, lets go!”

“W is for world, the 3rd from the sun.
As far as I know, we only have one,
that has water and air and forests of green,
so we must make an effort of keeping it clean.
Because this is your home, the place of your birth,
this beautiful planet, the one we can earth.”
