Editorial Reviews

Families who camp, school classes that make treks to outdoor sites, and scout and youth group leaders will find this book to be a detailed compendium for safe, environmentally friendly, and joyous campfire experiences. No other current title offers so much information about creating a successful evening in camp.—School Library Journal


The Kids Campfire Book will be dog-eared by the end of the summer. From starting the campfire to eating, game playing, singing, storytelling and finally dousing the fire's last embers, this illustrated, instructional book tells camp leaders and parents everything they need to know about creating the right spark for campfire fun.—Ottawa Citizen


Whether readers are novice or experienced campers, the information presented in this in-depth exploration of camping will make their next excursions into the woods enjoyable, successful, and safe.—Booklist
