Wonderful book for children! I read it to my 6-yr old (all 3 books in the series) and he absolutely loved it! We have learned how to make a compass, how to make a fire, all about peregrine falcons and much more!

I liked this one a bit more than the first book in the series. I still didn't care much for the survival skills information, but I thought the adventure aspect of the story was more enjoyable than what was in My Side of the Mountain. Overall, it's not one of my favorites, but I don't regret the time taken to read it.
