Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
The book is very interesting and entertaining. It would appeal to children of various ages, especially those who have attended a summer camp. I would recommend this book to parents who are trying to interest their child in attending camp. This book will show them what a fun filled experience camp is.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Nate Rocks the Boat?
I really liked the part where Boys White (Nate's team) won the challenge. I felt that Nate deserved this since he had been the underdog for most of the camp experience. It warmed my heart when his team won and especially the fact that he beat his annoying know-it-all sister's team.
Have you listened to any of Rich McVicar’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, I have. I think this is one of Mr. McVicar's best performances to date because of the variety of voices he used to portray the various characters in this book.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I was moved when Nate received a puppy for his valiant efforts to prevent the car from rolling in the lake with the puppy inside. It made me feel good to see him rewarded for his good deed.
Any additional comments?
I would highly recommend this book to parents, grandparents, and teachers. I believe this book would interest my two school aged grandsons. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series.
