PreSchool-Grade 2-Two lovable dogs are good friends, although they are very different. Fred is tall and rather bumbling; Ted is short and more capable. When they go camping, they often have their own preferences and ways of doing things. Each one allows the other to have his own way without commenting or teasing, despite Fred's usual misjudgment and clumsiness. All in all, the pals enjoy the various activities commonly pursued on such outings: pitching a tent; canoeing and fishing; and finding, cooking, and eating apples, berries, and nuts. Continuing the legacy of his father, Eastman has created an appealing picture book for new readers. The colorful, cartoon illustrations accurately depict the action and emotion of the simple text. A readable, fun-filled book.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ

When reading, he learns about camping equipment, colors, actions, relationships, and more. Although he was just beginning to understand the concept of "pretend play," he could easily understand that our boat was like Fred's and Ted's boat and we could pretend to paddle.
As another reviewer implied, the point isn't really whether or not we adults like it. It's whether or not our kids benefit from it. Obviously, kids have different tastes. Our guy has no interest in some books/toys about which other parents rave, no matter how hard I try to make them engaging. That's just him. He does like this book, however, as do I.
