Bobbing loons & hooting owls

February 28th, 2022

One of the important “firsts” in a child’s life, is their first camping trip as detailed in Jane Whittingham’s new picture book Wild About Camping (Nimbus $13.95) due out this June. A brother and sister set off for the woods and each page mirrors their actions in wild animal imagery, such as yanking cords while setting up their tent (linked to: pulling, tugging moose), to a swim in a nearby lake (floating, bobbing loons), to telling stories around the campfire (calling, hooting owls). Lively illustrations are by Bryanna Chapeskie. Whittingham is a picture book author of several other kidlit titles as well as a librarian with a passion for early literacy. 9781774710432
