Everest for KiDs
Updated February 2014
Child in the Khumbu

These stories are for children of all ages but especially for kids under ten. My dream is for parents to read these pages with their kids and help them understand the great opportunities that exist in our world.

Help them understand that people who are different from them are not right nor wrong but simply different. That nature holds special mysteries and rewards just waiting for the adventurous. That setting your sights on big goals help you do things you never thought you could. And when times get tough, don't give up. Life is wonderful and we have an obligation to live it to the fullest.

I hope you find a special connection with these stories and with your kids.

Update:

I returned to climb Mt. Everest and stood on the summit on May 21, 2011.You can read about my climb over the internet on my Blog at www.alanarnette.com/blog.

This was to raise awareness and research funds for Alzheimer's Disease and 100% of all donations go to Alzheimer's. This was part of climbing the 7 Summits - the highest mountain on each continent.
