Nice title about camping and the outdoors for younger listeners. Heading up to the mountains and going on a hike provides lots of opportunities for prepositional words. LOVE the animals following along behind the hiking family, and the little one who notices and makes friends. Real hiking families will be iffy with the fact that the toddler shares his teddy with a real bear--encouraging or condoning that behavior is not really kosher and can be dangerous. But the illlustrations are expressive, the colors provide a real sense of place, and there's lots to see and talk about. ( )

A really cute book about a family that goes camping. Everything that they do is going under, around, over, behind, etc. Very good to teach young kids, you let then guess from the picture how they are going to get to where they are going. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375869581, Hardcover)

In Susan Gal's delightful young-concept book, a family travels up a mountain, over a bridge, and under a canopy of trees to reach their campsite in the great outdoors.  A forest hike offers more opportunities to showcase words that describe spacial relationships and show young readers where they are in the world. Beside a lake! Next to a waterfall! On top of a mountain! Then after the sun slips behind the hills, they'll snuggle alongside each other and dream sweet dreams inside their tent among the trees.

Gal's pictures capture all the beauty of the natural world. And she's included a humorous cast of animal characters on a parallel journey of their own, so the art is full of funny things to spot.

This is a gem of a story for parents and teachers to share with their happy campers.

A child describes the wonders observed during a family camping trip to the mountains in a story that introduces the reader to prepositions.
