My little girl, who just turned two this month, loves to read. She also loves to come with Mommy when I work during Halloween Weekends. I think she really just loves the treats and golf car.
I’ve been searching for fun camping books we can read to get ready for the season. Wanted to share a few that I came across … they’re in no particular order. I’ll let you know later if they’re “Addison Approved” or not.
- A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee by Chris Van Dusen. Mr. Magee and his trusty dog, Dee, are enjoying a peaceful camping trip when all of a sudden they find themselves plunging down a mountain and teetering on the edge of a huge waterfall! How will they find their way out of this slippery situation?
- OLIVIA Goes Camping by Alex Harvey. Olivia is super excited to have her best friend come along on her family camping trip. However Francine is not a huge fan of the Great Outdoors and is less than excited about the mud, the bugs, and the idea of sleeping in a tent. It’s up to Olivia to help Francine get in touch with her inner nature lover in this funny story that’s based on an episode.
- Just Camping Out by Mercer Mayer. Love the “Little Critter” books. Little Critter’s little sister goes on a daredevil night of camping in their backyard-and even spends the night in the tent all by herself.
- S Is for S’mores: A Camping Alphabet by Helen Foster James. Next to baseball and fireworks on the Fourth of July, nothing else seems as American as the family camping trip. From what to pack, where to go, and what to do when you get there.
- Curious George Goes Camping by Margret & H.A. Rey. George tries to be helpful, but he of course just ends up upsetting a nearby camper. As he’s hiding in the woods, he meets a forest creature who catapults the mischievous monkey into a chain of even more outrageous events!
- Toasting Marshmallows: Camping Poems by Kristine O’Connell George. Everything that happens when you go camping can be an adventure, from getting dressed inside your sleeping bag on a chilly morning to meeting a moose to sharing secrets in a tent at night.
If you share any of these with your kids let me know what you, and they, think!
