Rollis, Charlemae. Tents. J. 1976.
Like the other books in the odd-covered UNICEF English-language education series, this book is a combination of a short story and a brief nonfiction section. In this case, the short story is one about two boys named Dan and Carl and their desire to sleep outside in their very own tent—even the rain can’t keep them from enjoying it. The nonfiction section has instruction on how to make your own tent, whether you make it outside between some trees, off the edge of a porch, or indoors. The book also has short built-in multiple-choice comprehension questions.
