The Safest Thing to Do

[For children]

Have you ever been on a camping trip?

One summer Anne, Janie, Sue, and their mom and dad, and Jimmy, Ricky, Chris, and their mom and dad, all went on a camping trip together. There were so many sleeping bags, besides all the food, that they had to take a packhorse and three burros to carry all the gear.

It was lots of fun hiking up the trail in the High Sierras of California. Every now and then they stopped to watch a family of deer playing in a creek. And the children learned to be careful not to step on the pretty wildflowers growing along the trail.
