It's summer time, and that means ice cream! In honor of Na- tional Ice Cream Month, we asked you to tell us your favorite local ice cream spots. Well, we soon discovered that Hudson Valley parents are very serious about their ice cream! We received more than 200 replies, and we've put together a great guide to some of your local favorites. How do you decide which one is truly "the best"? I guess you'll have to try them all! Guide to schools It's time for Hudson Valley Par- ent's annual Education Guide! Finding the right daycare, preschool or private school can be a daunting task for any parent. Regardless of their age, if you're looking for a new school for your child, you've come to the right place. We have a com- prehensive county-by-county guide to the best schools that the Hudson Valley has to offer! Do you already know and love a school in the region? Make sure to review it on our website at hvparent. com/school-guide. River keepers Whenever we cross over the Hudson River, my 3-year-old shouts, "Look, Mama! The ocean!" (Of course, he also calls the creek by our house "the ocean." We're working on that.) Regardless, it's an impressive body of water with a fascinating his- tory and breathtaking views — and it's right in our own backyard. So much of this region's identity is tied up in this awesome estuary, so we've compiled a guide to some of the best places to take your kids to study the river, learn its history, experience its beauty, and even help keep it clean for the sake of our children's children. Happy campers Do you love the great outdoors, but dread the idea of spending a night under the stars with your little ones? Fear not!

Whether you're looking to rough it in a tent, or simply kick up your feet in a rental cabin, make sure to check out our tips for stress-free camping with the kids this summer, complete with some helpful sugges- tions from our readers. Enjoy! We've got the scoop! KATY WEBER Editor's Journal Hudson Valley Parent reader Joyceann Partridge-Viola shared this photo of her little cuties at Twin Cone in Bloomingburg.
