A compendium of favorite camp songs for all ages to enjoy.
Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh,
Here I am at Camp Granada.
Camp is very entertaining.
And they say we’ll have some fun
if it stops raining.
The mosquitoes are out and biting, the rain’s coming down in buckets, and there’s poison ivy on the trail. We’re a long way from home and the food here stinks!
Camp wouldn’t be camp without troubles to share. But there are also new friends to make, adventurous trails to be climbed, and toasty evenings by the fire to enjoy (not to mention a fair bit of silliness).
Classic camp-song favorites—from “Rise and Shine” and “Found a Peanut” to “Kum Ba Yah”—and vibrant, folksy illustrations make this offering a musical walk through the campgrounds for generations to treasure.

It is her hope that readers will be singing (or humming) along from start to finish. Ms. Lessac has illustrated many books for young readers, including On the Same Day in March, which was named a Booklist Top Ten Science Book for Children and a Notable Children’s Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies. She lives in Freemantle, Australia, with her family.
