"Wolf Camp" by Katie McKy
Maddie's mother agrees to send her daughter to a new camp - Wolf Camp. But when Maddie returns, she seems, well, changed. She snaps at flies, howls at fire trucks, and chases squirrels - on all fours. She quits eating candy and starts eating meat - only meat. And the dog is now afraid of her when she lifts her lip and shows her teeth.
What child hasn't fantasized about being an animal? And what parent hasn't exclaimed over the transformation in their child when picking him or her up from camp? This book intertwines these two themes in a hilarious story of a very different kind of camping experience.
I don't quite remember summer camp changing me that much...just missing my family, meeting new friends and coming back to the ways things used to be. Well, in this story Maddie goes to 'Wolf Camp' to bring out her inner wild child and when she returns its as if she is part wolf!
She smells, hears, eats, scratches, howls and more...just like her dog - just like a wolf! This book was so cute - and the ending is even cuter! It will make every parent think of their own "wild" children!
I would recommend this book for ages 2 and up...and I can see it being read for a fun story time in preschool and elementary classrooms. If you are interested in buying this book, click on the title (link) above to purchase it on Amazon!
