Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
Stella, with her book of animal tracks, and Roy, with his flashlight, set off on a camping trip with their mother who is carrying "everything else." So begins this delightful picture book camping trip and natural history lesson. Readers not only get to vicariously spend a warm summer day and night in the woods, they also get lessons about camping, animal tracks, and bear safety. The large illustrations are vaguely old-fashioned which is a perfect fit for the pace and tone of the book which takes readers away from the rat race and into the cool, calm, peace of nature. This is another satisfying picture book from the illustrator of the hugely popular, Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2Stella & Roy Dutton, 1993, last seen pedaling around the park, go camping in the mountains with their mother in this attractive picture book. Stella has just learned to read and she comes armed with a book about animal tracks. Her younger brother is hoping to spot a bear. As they hike to their mountain-lake destination, Roy keeps finding tracks he thinks were made by a bear, but Stella disabuses him of this notion, showing him the pages in her book where the relevant coyote or marmot or raccoon tracks are displayed. After the family has made camp, eaten, and retired for the night, Roy is awakened by the sound of an intruder. He peers out of the tent and sees a brown bear trying to reach their food in its plastic barrel. The next morning, Roy has some bear tracks to show Stella. This gentle slice-of-life story with its satisfying conclusion evokes a feeling for the glories of camping. At the same time, Wolff imparts a surprising amount of information about the flora and fauna of the Sierra Nevada in her handsome linoleum-cut illustrations enhanced with color.Miriam Lang Budin, Mt.
