Goodnight, Campsite (aff. link) explores different types of camping and campers. The result is a book that can open up new activities and types of camping to young readers. Not only did my kids get to read about something they love, it gave us an opportunity to talk about aspects of camping we have not explored yet.
Why I like this book.
- Introduces kids to different types of camping. We only tent camp at this point but I hope to backpack as some day. This was a fun way to introduce it to my kids.
- Introduces kids to different camping activities. We have never taken our bikes camping and my son thought is was a little crazy to ride bikes over rocks. I told him it is actually a lot of fun and that we would try to take them on our next camping trip.
- Activity while reading the book. There is a squirrel on every page of the book. Sometimes he is obvious and sometimes he is not. Either way the kids had fun trying to find him.
- Activity for your next camping trip. Can't have too many activities for camping trips in my opinion, especially ones that don't require much equipment. All you have to do is print out the bingo cards at the back of the book.
All around I am very excited to have this book in my library. The kids love looking at the pictures. I love reading about one of my favorite activities. And it gets us all in the mood to go camping.
