Campfire Crisis: A Choice Chapter Book - Blake Hoena

Release Date - April 2013

Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

Campfire Crisis is kind of like the old Choose Your Own Adventure books. The reader is the main character for this story that involves making smart decisions. You join two friends on a camping trip, and this year your mom and dad give you permission to have a campsite all to yourself. The unexpected occurs when a forest fire hits and you and your friends must make your way to safety.

With each chapter, you must make a decision. The difference with this Choice Chapter Book is that if you do make the wrong decision, you're directed to the right choice with an explanation of why that is the right choice. I grew up with Choose Your Own Adventure books and the choice you made directed the plot, so I missed that aspect in this book.

This book is going to appeal to a certain age group, and that's why I'm recommending it to the 8 to 12 year old. It's a chapter book, so a little more challenging for beginning readers, but the material is also common sense info, so older readers might find it too easy to make the right choices.

For the younger camper, Campfire Crisis teachers some great lessons. If you are planning to take your child camping for the first time, this book does include information that comes in handy.
