When We Go Camping

When We Go Camping Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this beautifully illustrated book, one busy family finds lots to do from sun up to sunset. At the campsite, theres wood to chop for the fire and fish to catch. And theres lots of time to explore, climb rocks, splash in the lake, and discover animals in the shadows of the woods. As afternoon turns to evening, supper needs to be made, and just before bed, stories are told around the campfire.

When We Go Camping is as instructional as it is delightful. Each painting highlights the tracks of one animal, which curve from the text into the illustration. Readers can turn to the glossary for more details about the wildlife depicted on each page.

When We Go Camping is a perfect way to preserve summer memories all year long.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

What could be more fun than a day of camping? There's wood to chop for the campfire and fish to catch for lunch. Then it's time to go exploring, climbing rocks, splashing in mountain lakes while looking for minnows, and spying animals among the shadows of the woods. As afternoon turns to evening, there's supper to get ready and stargazing by the campfire before unrolling sleeping bags and the end of a perfect day.
"When We Go Camping is as instructive as it is delightful. Each painting highlights the tracks of one animal, which curve from the text into the illustration, and readers can turn to a helpful glossary for more details about the wildlife depicted.
