The Illustrations are a true representation of camping in New Zealand, the font is a good size – making it easy to read, and with repetition which reinforces the story. I read it to a class of 6 and 7 year olds.
They liked the rhyming words, the pictures of the pool, fishing and the animals. And a great discussion about long-drops was had after we finished reading.
This book will be a well-loved addition to our library.
