Activities for the Backyard or Wilderness (paper $12.95, 180p, ages 4-12 ISBN 1-55652-237-1) and Green Thumbs: A Kid's Activity Guide to Indoor and Outdoor Gardening (paper $12.95, 138p, ages 3-9 -238-X).

From School Library Journal Grade 3-6?A good guide to outdoor adventures for inexperienced young campers and their families. The authors believe in the importance of having a hands-on relationship with nature while maintaining a healthy respect for it, and stress safety precautions and preparation. The chapters feature directions for making inexpensive equipment and projects while exploring nature; crafts; outdoor games; and recipes for snacks and meals. The large pages are illustrated with black-line drawings and diagrams placed alongside detailed instructions and, often, special boxes with helpful "stay safe" and "nature note" tips. There is an error in the bowline-knot diagram and there is no mention of the need for reservations in many state and national parks. Other than these minor flaws, the book will prevent the uninitiated from making the numerous little mistakes that can become annoying and even dangerous. This title is a nice addition to books such as Wayne Armstrong's Camping Basics (Prentice-Hall, 1985) and Patrick F. McManus's Kid Camping from Aaaaiii! to Zip (Lothrop, 1979).?Gale W.
