The Book

"Out the door, down the stairs
Chatting, chirping jays.
In the car, winding roads
Dozing, snoozing bears."

From the get-go this delightful book oozes adventure, excitement and happiness.  Who doesn't love a-camping-outdoor's experience?  An adorable duo, a brother and sister, are about to go on their first camping trip and they are wound up and ready to discover all the joy that it can bring.  

The reader is invited to come along and join in their merriment as they set up their tent (with the help of a huge moose ), swim in the lake (surrounded by floating loons ),  and enjoy great fun around the evening campfire ( singing and laughing and hooting as they call owls).  Not only do the kids have a blast but the animals that they encounter share their enthusiasm and mimic the things that the kids are engaged in.  

The artwork is colourful, full of activity and detail.  The text is limited to one sentence per page making it a great book for beginning readers to tackle and it is a great vocabulary builder. Overall the book is a celebration of camping in the wild and lends itself to a great read aloud as well.  Kids will love the book and I highly recommend it.
