Designed to be read, scribbled on, illustrated, smeared, scratched and sniffed, it may just be the most revolutionary geography-related book ever published. --National Geographic Education

Format: Paperback
We got very excited when this book arrived. The first Mission:Explore book was great, and now this one contains a whole new set of missions tailored specifically to our favourite pastime: Camping!

There are 50 all-new missions guaranteed to get kids both involved in, and intrigued by, their surroundings. From playing a challenging game of hide and seek in bright clothing to imagining the campsite 1000 years ago, young explorers will have to use every ounce of creativity and ingenuity they possess to complete their missions.

Camping and making camps have always been educational activities but this book gives campsite play a focus and promotes deeper thought and reflection on encounters with nature. The book even encourages the reader to turn it into a living record of their adventures - my kids love scribbling notes, sticking in leaves, and making it well and truly their own. I hope that when they look back through the book in years to come, they will recall the days spent doing their fun and memorable missions.

Safety is addressed as a very important issue but thankfully it is not presented in a `cotton wool brigade' way. Instead it is Basic Training, with real reasons for following safety guidelines peppered with hilarious tips, making it relevant and understandable to young readers. My children were in fits of giggles about the importance of not sticking the book in your eye, or `weeing and farting' in your tent!

I asked my children what they thought of the book: "Brilliant!" piped up one, "It's exciting!" chimed in the other before begging me to let her take it on our next camping trip.

And the best thing: the kids ran off exploring and entertaining themselves for hours, leaving me to kick back and relax with a cheeky beer in the peaceful afternoon sun!

Another nice little book in the series. Weird and wonderful mini-adventures, amusing little cartoons, and fifty little challenges to try. Camping yes, but most of them don't even need a tent, and you can do them in your park or garden.

Ages 4 to 10, everyone enjoyed Bug hotel (with a visitors' book) and Ice melt (how long can you keep your ice cube alive). Surely no-one will do all fifty, but everyone will find one or two to enjoy.

It isn't just froth. There is a philosophy behind Mission Explore, and it is to do with looking again at the local environment, taking time to notice and learn from little parts of the world, and having fun outdoors.

We're a long way from Marcel Proust, but it was Proust who said that we shouldn't see new landscapes, but see landscapes anew. Mission Explore would probably agree.

I loved the first mission explore book,Mission Explore I bought it for my daughter who is seven and then I got one for my Nephew who is 13 and one for my other nephew, as a going to University present(this book has no age appropriate button). So when I realised that there would be two new books, Mission:Explore Camping and Mission:Explore On the Road,I had them on pre order in February. Well today they arrived at lunch time and lunch was delayed! As with the first book there are a series of missions that are designed to get kids out and about exploring their world. The books are not designed to be left on the shelf, but to be stuffed in your pocket, to be drawn in and to have all manner of stuff stuck in them and smeared on them.The missions are fun, challenging, engaging and sometimes very funny; they can be completed on your own or with friends.

There are helpful hints about protecting yourself and the environment, amusing illustrations and importantly for me tips on being a Guerrilla Geographer (I am a geography teacher). If you are a geography teacher these can be used a stimulus to gets kids to engage with their place, another place or even just a place in their heads.

Missions I like - Make a tiny map for a tiny person, Be a boot flinger and the one which caused a 7 year old to giggle and go ohhh at the same time Luvverly Poop
