Book review: Mouse Scouts Camp Out, by Sarah Dillard

Dillard, Sarah.  Mouse Scouts Camp Out.  (Mouse Scouts series.) Random House Children’s Books, 2016.  $6.99.  ISBN 978-0-385-75608-2. 144 Pages.  Ages 5-8.  Q8P7

This is the third book in the Mouse Scouts series and focuses on teamwork and friendship through an overnight camping trip.  I liked the Mouse Scout Handbook which gives helpful tips to being a successful camper throughout the book.  The tips, while from a mouse’s perspective, are valid tips for a successful camping experience, such as how to make a compass and various wilderness dangers from poisonous plants to bugs and snakes.  The outdoors is not a comfortable place for everyone and this book shares tips to make outdoor life bearable for those who don’t come by it naturally.

Verdict:  A simple story of friendship and perseverance through teamwork with lots of tips and tricks for happily experiencing the outdoors.
