Toasting Marshmallows: Camping Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This collection of poems take readers on a camping trip, and turn the memorable moments of a family outing into spirited, evocative verse. Full-color illustrations.

Synopsis:

Small me, in a small tent staked to a huge planet, rolling slowly through open space — alone.

Everything that happens on a camping trip can be an adventure: Getting dressed inside your sleeping bag on a chilly morning. Rowing across the lake with Mom, exploring a dark cave with Dad. Discovering an abandoned cabin . . . meeting a moose . . . or simply sitting still under a tree, watching and listening. Pitching a tent in the woods is only the beginning!

Award-winning poet Kristine O'Connell George turns a flashlight beam on the moments that make up a family camping trip and records them in humorous, evocative, vividly imagined verse redolent of the scent of pine needles and the sound of bees. Kate Kiesler's vibrant paintings add visual magic to the collaboration, which will leave you with lively memories of a camping trip — even if you've never been on one.
