you ever gone to summer camp, far away from your home? Do you remember
how you felt when you left your parents for the first time? Did you
have second thoughts about going? When you arrived and saw no familiar
faces, were you homesick? Did you decide to go back home? Did you
write sad, shocking letters home to beg for help? And just when you
convinced your parents that you were truly miserable, did you change
had been to day camps but never to a sleepaway camp for two weeks.
You can find out all about his camping adventure through the letters
between Michael and his dad. Both have out-of-the-box imaginations
and writing skills, and both will inspire you to go to summer camp
next summer! Their book is filled with pictures, advice, folded letters
in little envelopes, post cards (front and back) and even a little
illustrated ghost story tucked into its own envelope. You'll love
meeting the campers, reading about their pranks, laughing at their
art, and starting to design your own creative letters!

add some laughter to your school or classroom library, and the Kids
Wings activities will increase its learning potential and fun!
