    When it comes to church, kids sometimes think and say the darnedest things. The Tales from the Back Pew series takes a light-hearted look at some of the misconceptions our children may have about church.In Church Summer Cramp, the main character is trying to process all that the pastor has promised them about the youth group's trip to summer camp. He's not quite sure how getting lost, becoming a mosquito burrito, and sleeping in tents are anybody's idea of a good time. In spite all his objections he remembers that God took care of the Israelites when they were in the wilderness wandering around lost and sleeping in tents. If God took care of the Israelites, he can trust that He will take care of him too. Besides, canoodling, throwing horses, and possibly running into Bigfoot sounds like it might be fun.Children ages 4-8 and their parents will enjoy the light-hearted fun found in the Tales from the Back Pew series. As you complete each story, you'll be able to talk about the realities of "church life" and how it really isn't as bad as they maybe thought it was at first. Be on the lookout for two new titles in this series (Walking the Plank to the Baptism Tank & The Three Wise Guys), both scheduled to release later this year.

    The title of this book, Church Summer Cramp, written by Mike Thaler, should give you an indication of what to expect from the text. The title is a play on words, as is most of the text. A young boy is headed for summer church camp, and as you might guess, hes not looking forward to what he is convinced will be an ordeal. The books starts out: Our church youth group is having a summer cramp. Its called a retreat. I thought Jesus told us to go forward. Why would we want to retreat? It continues in this zany manner through to the end.With summer right around the corner, you might be planning on sending your child to a summer church camp. If so, this might be the perfect book for them. The two of you can laugh your way through the pages as you prepare your child for summer church cramp!The illustrations by Jared Lee are cartoon-like with speech bubbles sprinkled throughout. What I Like: Everything. What a delightful book! It reminds me of the Little Critter books (of which Im a big fan) by Mercer Mayer.What I Dislike: Nothing.Overall Rating: Excellent.Age Appeal: The publisher suggests 4-8 as the appropriate age group for this book. I think thats a bit too young, as most children in this age bracket would be too young to go off to camp by themselves. I think this book would appeal more to children about 8-12.Christian Children's Book Review
