Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This most unlikely pair has decided on an outdoor adventure. They are going camping. The tents, sleeping bags, and food are all stowed in their packs as they set out into the woods. Turtle and Snake find the perfect spot and after setting up their tent, they start toasting marshmallows over the fire. Suddenly the night is filled with "Whooo...Whooo" and lots of peering eyes. The duo beats a hasty retreat all the way home, which they decide is perhaps the best place to camp, and end up roasting their marshmallows in the fireplace. The trip out and the trip back repeat words and will assure success for kids just getting started in reading. A Viking "Easy-to-Read" book, Level 1. 2000, Viking, $13.89. Ages 4 to 7. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Best friends Turtle and Snake check out books from the library on camping; pack their tent, sleeping bags, and backpacks; and set off-around trees, into the brook, across the pond to the campgrounds. Later, a spooky noise (an owl's hoot) startles them and they hurry back to their best camping spot-home-where they roast marshmallows in the fireplace. A truncated version of Michael Rosen's We're Going on a Bear Hunt (McElderry, 1989), the text has a succinct liveliness about it, and the childlike primary-colored cartoons are funny and add to the book's charm. Animals in many of the pictures are reading books-an unobtrusive message for beginning readers.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|

    Cute book for emergent readers

    I taught kindergarten and now my own 5 year old son loves to read this one by himself. He likes the story and the illustrations.
