Review: Pip Goes to Camp by Donna L. Peterson


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
Summer camp won’t know what hit them! Pip’s parents are sending him away on an adventure, but Pip’s sure a whole week at camp will be more like torture! Filled with fun comedy, eye-catching pictures, and an easy-to-follow storyline, this book is perfect for young readers and guaranteed to keep the whole family grinning to the very last page!
MY TAKE:


I've never been to summer camp, but Pip makes it look like such an adventure.


In Pip Goes Camp, Pip's parents send him off to camp. There, Pip meets some really weird and really fun people that makes his camp stay memorable.

I thought this book was funny! Pip definitely sounds like a typical boy, although there were times when he sounded a little bit old-fashioned. For the most part, however, Pip is the kind of heroine that young boys will relate to. There was even a portion of the book where I thought that Pip could have been part of Holes.

Each chapter talks about Pip's adventures with his campmates. This is a great idea since each chapter can sort of be read alone. This is perfect for kids with short attention spans.

Kids can also learn new vocabulary words from the book. Some of the words are italicized for emphasis and explained so that kids can learn what they mean.

Thanks to NetGalley and Bonneville for the e-ARC. Publication date of Pip Goes to Camp is on August 14, 2012.
