North Woods Girl


Author: Aimée Bissonette
Illustrations by Claudia McGehee

I liked North Woods Girl because it reminds me of my great  grandmother and my mom. They are both North Woods Girls. My great I grandmother was raised in the New Hampshire/Maine woods and still likes to hunt, fish, hike and camp. She is 90!

My mom was raised hiking, camping, fishing. She just took my brother and I camping in the Pictured Rocks Lakeshore. I even called Absolutely Mindy from the Sable Dune.

(Secret message: I wish I was more of a North Woods Girl but I don’t like bug bites.)

The story is about a girl visiting her grandmother, who lives in the woods. They go hiking in the trails behind grandmother’s place. They spend time in nature together.

The illustrations are really nice and have a lot of details. I like the illustration of grass because of the different colors used.

I recommend this story to outdoor girls and boys.

  1. Dear Bridget,
    Thank you for this wonderful review of “North Woods Girl”! I am so impressed by your blog and your writing skills. Your mom and Great Grandma sound like my kind of girl 🙂 And I am jealous of your trip to Pictured Rocks. It is beautiful there, isn’t it?
    Keep reading and writing. Who knows, maybe I’ll be writing a review of one of your books some day.
    All the best, Aimee

  2. I didn’t live in the woods, but I did a lot of camping and hiking and exploring when I was growing up. I still really love to do it, but I need to get out and do it MORE! I’ll bet reading this book will help inspire me to visit more woods.
