As a collector of children's serials written from the 1900's on I love this book, as a Girl Scout for most of my life (and a current leader) this book is a fun look into scouting in the 50's. It's interesting to see what has and has not changed about scouting and this book might be an excellent tool to help your Junior Scouts explore the history of scouting!

I wasn't a Girl Scout and I never camped, but I LOVED this book since I purchased it in 5th grade many moons ago. I still have my copy and still read it every summer. It brings me back to those days of sitting on my back patio reading a book and not having a care in the world. GREAT BOOK!!

I so loved this book as a young girl. I read it over and over and over. Sal was such a normal girl going through so many of the things a young girl does. She felt homesick, she made friends, she didn't pass her swimming test the first time, she loved camping out under the stars, she was initially afraid of bats but learned they were okay. A fascinating look at what it means to be a young girl growing up, learning, and making friends. I would have loved to have been a friend of Sal's.

Format: Paperback
I was a Girl Scout in the late 70's early 80's so it was interesting reading about Girl Scouts in the 50's. Although this book is dated, Sal, a shy, sheltered girl must deal with many of the issues that today's scouts deal with-issues with kids in their patrol, being a patrol leader, being away from home at camp, meeting people from different backgrounds, failing a swim test, and experiencing new things. Sal loves and does alot of hiking and outdoors stuff at home but at camp the first hikes seem elementary and lets her frustrations be known to her counselor who very nicely explains that not all scouts have the same experiences so they need to start out slow. Sal also must deal with a girl in her patrol who plagarizes a poem. I won't spoil the ending to that storyline but the reason this girl plagarizes is one kids can relate to today. It's still worth reading and will hold kids interests today.
