Booklist Review

Reviewed with Tim Seeberg's Freshwater Fishing0 . Gr. 3-5. For children needing to prepare, mentally and otherwise, for first encounters with the Great Outdoors, these upbeat primers in the Kids' Guides to the Outdoors series provide both basic information and a confidence-boosting attitude. Punctuated with color photos of enthusiastic-looking young people and family groups, Seeberg's texts send the clear message that, with a bit of advance planning, adult help, a few items of equipment (which he lists), and respect for basic safety rules, outdoor activities can't fail to be a blast. The topical coverage is uneven: Freshwater Fishing0 , for instance, covers bait- and spin-casting in some detail, but not fly fishing. Though bugs, bears, and other discomforts rate barely a mention in Camping0 , and Freshwater Fishing 0 passes in silence over such topics as baiting hooks, gutting one's catch, or certain aspects of boating safety, the titles will be useful additions to collections serving urban or densely suburban communities. --John Peters Copyright 2004 Booklist
