This book makes you want to go camping!,
This review is from: Camp Out!: The Ultimate Kids' Guide (Paperback)
This book is fun to read. As an adult I can get bored with child language in non-fiction books, but this book kept me riveted. I am fascinated by the sheer number of uses the author has found for duct tape on camping trips including wrapping a few strips around a water bottle for emergencies. It is one of the best introductions to the world outside our front door that I have come across. The illustrations are clear and humourous. The science in the chapters on astronomy, weather, and naturalist sections is straightforward. The only part which lacks a little imagination is the advice on keeping a field journal.
This book is ideal for any wannabe family campers, die-hard campers, scout and guide leaders, forest school leaders and teachers who want to do more outdoor activities with children. It is very good value for the cover price. It is aimed at children aged 7 years and upwards. A useful present if you are stuck for a gift.
