Andy is going off to summer camp for the first time. Shortly after arriving at camp, he begins to struggle with feelings of homesickness. With the advice of his camp counselor, Andy learns the coping skills to help him overcome feelings of homesickness. As Counselor Mike tells Andy, "homesickness is a normal thing to happen to kids" and that "homesickness doesn't last long." Bug Bites and Camp Fires explains homesickness to kids in a fully illustrated book that also includes a foreword for parents and camp web resources. This book offers comfort and will assist the child reader to gain a sense of confidence, security and mastery over separating from their parents or when they are away from home.
