fr My First Bare Holidays

cov/bib_vacances.jpg - Author : Alain Grousset, Bruno Salaamone
- Editor : Nathan Jeunesse
- Collection : PREMIÈRE LUNE N°73
- ISBN : 209282323X
- Date : 06-2000
- About : Victor is mad ! His parents exagerate. What a stupid idea to spend vacations in a nudist camp!
- Where To buy : Amazon FR, Alapage, Amazon CA

fr The Naked Truth

- Author : Brigitte Smadja
- Editor : Ecole des loisirs
- Collection : PREMIÈRE LUNE N°73
- ISBN : 2211046339
- Date : 09-1997
- About : Charles ought to say the truth to Louise, his sister, about the place where they are going to spend two weeks of vacations. Why did Joseph choose to invite her too? Everything would be perfect if they were going to leave without her. You need to explain that to her, said Joseph. Yes, explain. Charles looks at his sister. His sister with her long black skirts, her dislike of festivities, her little air to be in love with Joseph. The vacations will be a disaster. She absolutely needs to know the truth.
- My Opinion : Frankly, disappointing. With such a title, one would expect the main character to get into the naturism. On the contrary, she spends the entire book time in hiding from people... and herself.

fr Carolus Naked

- Author : Yves Heurte

- About : Carolus is born naked, as you and me. However, nobody ever could clothe him. Imagine a little if you had to stay completly naked from the dawn to the sunset! Especially, if you were a king, or a president of the republic, or a school teacher... Or if you had to play the naked king on a theater stage, in front of all your friends?

fr The Children of the White Whale

- Author : Xavier Roy
- Editor : Robert Laffont
- Collection : L'aventure continue...
- ISBN : 2221055349
- Date : 06-1988
- About : Eight children, six boys and two girls, from eleven to sixteen years old, are going to live their most marvellous and enriching of the adventures, during an entire year. On board of two little yachts, from Açores to Carribean, to the end of the Atlantic Ocean, they are going to coast chasing large herds of humpback whales. On the ocean and under water surface, in discovering coral reefs, fish and whale-calves with their tender eyes, the school on the sea will be that of the life.
Xavier Roy is one of the founders of The White Whale, 'a school without a chalk board'.
- My Opinion : Though this book is not about naturism, the atmosphere was undoubtfully and wonderfully naturist (the pictures being the proof). I say 'was' because the association asked me not to assimilate it with naturist approach in any way.

- ISBN : 2869675194
- Date : 12-1998
- About : Pyrénée is a little bit a feminine equivalent of Mowgli of The Jungle Book of Kipling. Like Mowgli, she is taken care of and educated by animals. The bear Huge Animal replaces Baloo. When her teaching is over, it is time to go back to the civilization. The character will undoubtedly give place to other adventures. The drawings are interesting and have varied plans. The nudity of the character is all natural.

en A Little Boy Lost

- Author : William H. Hudson
- Illustrator : Dorothy P. Lathrop
- Editor : Wildside Press
- ISBN : 1557422788
- Date : 08-2004
- About : This tale, written in 1905 by an English author living in Argentina, is a fantastic gift for anyone who sees the world with a child's eyes. It is amazing to find a true naturist atmosphere in the story, which is the respect of all living forms, absolute trust in the goodness of people, the full skin contact with nature. The fact that the little boy finds himself without clothes for awhile in the wilderness or meeting other people, and doesn't think about its lack anymore, is equally refreshing for today's reader. It is a true chef d'oeuvre which every parent must read to their children.
- My Opinion : I was nicely surprised to find a true naturist atmosphere in this book, with a very precise observation of the nature.
