Caitlin's Buddy (Paperback)
First-time campers can be a lot of trouble Caitlin agrees to be the buddy of a new camper. She and new camper Misha are assigned to the most rustic area where campers sleep in tents and cook over an open fire. Misha doesn't know anything about camp life. She trips over tent stakes, cries herself to sleep, and hides food in her backpack. Caitlin often gets frustrated as she teaches Misha what she needs to know. Caitlyn's Buddy describes fun camping activities, outdoor cooking, and the growing friendship of two very different girls. As the days pass, Misha learns the importance of teamwork and Caitlyn realizes everyone has something special to contribute. Then, after a campfire, Misha runs off into the dark night and Caitlin follows to stop her. Will Caitlin be able to forgive Misha for getting them lost? Will the two girls only be temporary tentmates or friends forever? Children, in grades 1 thru 4 (ages 5 to 9), especially girls who will be going to summer camp for the first time will enjoy the feeling of taking part in summer camp adventures and sharing the ups and downs of new friendships.
