A story about a mother's quiet promise to get outside with her kids at least fifteen minutes every day for an entire year, the book has sold 15,000 copies to date and continues to be a valuable resource for families looking for meaningful and easy ways to spend quality time together in the digital age.

From a go-to reference on the family table for activities to do together to principals who have chosen the book for all teachers to take the fifteen minutes outside challenge daily with students, Fifteen Minutes Outside is having an enduring impact on family well-being, parenting, and connection to nature.
