Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Baily doesn't get to go on the trip with his older brother and sister, but discovers that some of camping's pleasures can be had at home. Ages 2-6. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
PreS Bailey's Bunny Scout brother and sister are going camping, but he is too young to go with them. Although they tell him that fishing, sleeping in a tent, eating hot dogs and toasting marshmallows isn't that great, Bailey is not to be comforted until Mother suggests that he can do all the camp things right at homewhich he does. The pale blues, grays, purples and soft yellows of the watercolor and pencil drawings are a soothing complement to the quiet text. Illustrations are bordered and centered; text appears opposite or below the artwork. The rabbits, who show human expressions, are drawn in a simple cartoon style, with human clothing and household accoutrements. An enjoyable read-aloud book for small preschool groups or before bedtime.Dawna Lisa Buchanan-Berrigan, College of Education, Ohio State University, Columbus

Baily wants to go camping. He was too little. He went camping in his house and it ended with him falling asleep. I like the book because it is fun.
