Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
If your travel destination is a campsite, you will find this most helpful. It is a resource that speaks about different kinds of camping and shelter. It provides a great checklist for trip planning, cooking, cleaning and clothes. Once you have arrived, the book offers directions for everything from preparing your campsite to recipes. Also, it offers after-dark fun, and provides the names of organizations that can give more specific information about your chosen location.
