Adventure Books - the Summer Gift
With summer camp season fast approaching, a book like "Summer Sleep-Away" is the perfect gift to pack into your child's camp trunk.
Author Ofer Aronskind drew inspiration for his novel from his own childhood experiences spent at his family's summer camp up in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. Aronskind spent every summer of his childhood up at camp and many of the characters and stories depicted in his book are based on his memories of those carefree wonderful summers. "Summer Sleep-Away" recreates the magic that is sleep-away camp and will delight every reader of any age. Whether you're in camp now or went to camp a lifetime ago, "Summer Sleep-Away" will pull you back into the days of lazying around the bunk with a comic book or swimming out to the floating dock on a hot summer afternoon.
