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-K—Bailey wants to go camping with his older brother and sister who are both Bunny Scouts. He wants to eat hot dogs, live in a tent, tell ghost stories, and fall asleep under the stars. Though his parents try to console him with other activities, nothing works until they create a special day of camping just for him. He spends the day under a blanket tent in the living room, eats hot dogs and roasts marshmallows in the kitchen, and swims and goes fishing in the bathtub. After going on a bear hunt and telling ghost stories to his parents, Bailey falls asleep in his own bed under his starry blanket. Katherine Kellgren narrates Kevin Henkes' story (Greenwillow, 1985) in a nicely modulated voice. Pleasant music and aptly chosen sound effects highlight this happy production. Page-turn signals are optional. Whether shared with a preschool group or read as a bedtime story, it is sure to leave children smiling.—Mary Jean Smith, formerly Southside Elementary School, Lebanon, TN

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.
