This book, by Caro Mundt, is about Tayla and features photographs of her adventure up Mount Taranaki (also known as Mount Egmont) with her aunt. It's very encouraging to children, teaching them little bits about the area and also showing them the various scenery of New Zealand. I think it might be very inspirational to kids as well, and could help children to adventure about the areas about their own home. At the end of the book is a little bit more information about the area and a glossary for words some might not know the definition of. As for the difficulty level of the book, it's only 800 words. Even if your child mightn't understand the words, there are plenty of images to denote the events.

Overall it's a lovely little book. I'm sure that many children will love it!

This book intrigued me due to the photographs mentioned and whilst it is not the sort of book I would usually read, I found it well put together and I liked seeing what Tayla did in her trek up the mountain trail. I can see this would be a very appealing book to read with a child interested in the outdoors. Beautiful scenery too.
