Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Beany is deposited at Camp Onandaga feeling sure that she will hate it. And she does for the first day, although there are signs all around her that she'll make friends. Skye in the bunk beside her can't swim, cries herself to sleep, and is late to breakfast on the first day. But compassionate Beany befriends her, the two help each other get used to camp, and Beany's bossy friend Carol Ann gets her way. The cabin wins first place as best cabin of the week but it is because of Beany's and Skye's brave acts of learning to swim and dive. Each chapter shows Beany accepting more of camp and becoming more active, her friendly and supportive counselor Daisy making things familiar and easy for her, and what camp life is like. For the experienced camper, this book sounds just right and for the nervous would-be one, it should be reassuring. The endpapers feature lines from four letters Beany sends showing that things will turn out¾but the reader has to discover how. Crisply told and with humor (there are plenty of lame "dad jokes" Beany tells), great camp details, frequent black and white illustrations which depict characters with friendliness, and medium-length chapters give this book plenty of appeal to middle elementary school girl readers. It's the fourth in the "Beany" series. 2002, Candlewick,

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Another beginning chapter book about Bernice Sherwin-Hendricks, better known as Beany. She loves the relaxing, don't-have-to-do-anything of summer vacation and isn't interested in going away to camp, even though her friend Carol Ann loved Camp Onondaga. Then her parents announce that Beany is going for a week and readers follow her as she leaves (very much against her will), meets her bunkmates and cabin counselor, and learns the routine. Beany helps a homesick bunkmate, Skye, and the two campers swim, help the cook, and participate in other activities. This is an enjoyable book for children just beyond easy-readers. The characters are not much more than two-dimensional figures and it's fairly obvious that Beany will end up loving camp by the end of the week, but her friendship with Skye, her consideration for others, and her experiences make this an appealing read. An enjoyable addition, illustrated with numerous black-and-white line drawings.-Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

Susan Wojciechowski, a former children’s librarian, has written numerous books for children. She says that BEANY GOES TO CAMP was inspired by her daughter Mary’s camp experiences when she was nine or ten. "Mary hated camp and wrote many letters home detailing the reasons why," the author explains. "I kept those letters because they were so funny, and now, after all that time, they still make me laugh."

    Best of Beany

    This is our favorite Beany book - maybe because our girl has been to camp too and she found the camp stories really funny. Beany is a great character - much more realistic than Junie B. Jones. The letters home from camp were very funny.
