KIRKUS REVIEW

 In a text as spare as haiku, Bauer (Am I Blue, 1994, etc.) tells of a camping trip that includes roasting hot dogs, catching a fish (and letting it go), and taking in the natural wonder of their surroundings. There is an intensity of shared experience in the writing, of an acknowledgement and celebration of nature. The pace is careful, leisurely; both campers revel in the hushed moments and quiet joys that are a part of such trips. Garns's paintings capture spectacular natural light, and have a comfortable familiarity of details; words and text encourage an attentive reading and a savoring of each page. (Picture book. 4-8)
