Who can forget their first camping trip Holidays, lolling days Mom wishes for museums and art galleries Dad talks about fancy hotels My sister Laurie wants malls, anywhere Duncan dreams of arcades And I long for Disneyland This year won_t be like the others There will be no paintings or fluffy towels, clothes racks, jackpots or mouse ears Nancy and her family areWho can forget their first camping trip Holidays, lolling days Mom wishes for museums and art galleries Dad talks about fancy hotels My sister Laurie wants malls, anywhere Duncan dreams of arcades And I long for Disneyland This year won_t be like the others There will be no paintings or fluffy towels, clothes racks, jackpots or mouse ears Nancy and her family are going camping Just the thought of camping is bad enough Outhouses, mosquito bites, burnt food and lots of work what kind of holiday is that But from the moment their campsite is established, the family slowly begins to discover the magic of life in the wild Nights so quiet and dark, it_s like being wrapped in a blanket Food that warms the stomach and awakens the senses Swimming in the lake, climbing trees and lolling in the sun And millions, no, bajillions of stars More time, less o_clock That_s what camping is about Nancy Hundal_s prose seems to dance off the pages in this valentine to camping As with her previous bestsellers, Number 21 and Prairie Summer, Camping is filled with unique expressions and descriptive language so beautifully precise, it brings with it an almost electric shock of recognition This is artist Brian Deines third collaboration with the author, following Prairie Summer and Number 21 And once again, his palette is filled with the warmth of sunny days and firelight and the sharp cold of water and star filled nights And his impressionistic brush strokes heighten the sense of being surrounded by and part of his gorgeous images.

Oh, this book very unexpectedly hit me right where it counts I totally didn't expect the tears that came out of nowhere!It sooooo perfectly described the smorgasbord of senses that camping provides And we could kind of relate to the family in this story - not because it was our first time camping, but because it was our first time in a few years not having our trailer at our campsite. but when we returned to tent camping at our favorite provincial park - all of the wonderful memories came floodi [...]
Everyone in the family has different ideas of the perfect vacation ranging from museums to Disneyland but money is tight and the decision is made to go camping. In verse with art in a pointillism style, the story of their camping adventure is related. Nice option for early elementary.
Beautifully captures the essence of family and camping. Of the great lines, my favorite is."More time, less o'clock."
I actually teared up when I read this with my son, as it reminded me of our own family camping trips. Very well-written, with lovely illustrations.
Everyone in the family has their own idea of the perfect vacation, museums and art galleries, fancy hotels, malls, arcades, and Disneyland. But, due to a lack of money, the family goes camping. Bit by bit the simple wonders of campfires, swimming in the lake, evening stars, cold drinking water, and doing absolutely nothing win over the family.Nancy Hundal’s writing is beautifully poetic, “We feel the sun’s journey across our campsite. It taps her tent in the morning, pours like syrup warm [...]
This is another Hundal masterpiece, using her impressive grasp of language to share the story of a family camping experience. This is the kind of writing that children should be exposed to in a writing workshop setting if we expect them to produce compelling work of their own. Really well done. The illustrations are dark and deep and will catch you up in the experience with one look. Great book.
Heart-warming story of a family's first camping trip. They decide to camp when money is tight and find that the bonding, new experiences, and simple pleasures will bring them back again next year. Used for October, 2009 "Let's Camp-Out!" storytime.
