Our library has Jessica Loy's newest book, When I Grow Up, about careers. It's quite popular and I was very pleased to find this older book about camping!
Ms. Loy is a graphic designer as well as painter and author and her excellent sense of design is obvious in this guide to camping. The book contains all the important information - what to take, where to go, how to stay safe, and what to do - all organized efficiently and attractively in 48 pages. Fun illustrations accompany instructions that range from how to safely make a campfire to rainy day activities to do in your tent.
Verdict: A perfect book for beginning campers or those who need a refresher on the basics or some new ideas!
