Summary: When James and Eamon go to a week of Nature Camp and stay at Eamon's grandparents' house, it turns out that their free time spent staying inside, eating waffles, and playing video games is way more interesting than nature. But sometimes things work out best when they don't go exactly as planned.
In this moving and hilarious celebration of young boys, childhood friendships, and the power of the imagination, Marla Frazee captures the very essence of summer vacation and what it means to be a kid. Genre:Fictional Picture Book
Reading Level: Late transitional, This book is late transitional because it has several sentences per page. The font is small and placed throughout the page. The illustrations do support the text.
Topic: Spending time with grandparents, nature camp, being with friends
Curriculum Uses: This would be a great read aloud for 1-4 grade.
Social Issues: This book discusses the differences between the young generation and the older generation.
Literary Elements: This book uses a lot of exaggerations within the text. This book also has a metaphor in it when it says the boys walked like penguins.
Illustrations & Text: The illustrations in this book add to the humor and exaggeration within the text. The illustrations make the book much more entertaining.
