bailey wants to go camping but he is too little so he decides to go camping in his house.

This is a purely simple story, meant for young children (toddlers) who feel limited because of their youth, and I think it gives a great message. Bailey's older brother and sister are going camping--sleeping under the stars, fishing, roasting marshmallows, and doing other fun things--but because Bailey is "too young," he isn't allowed to go. However, Bailey's parents show him that just because you're stuck at home doesn't mean you can't have fun. This encourages younger children that if they use their imaginations, they can have fun wherever they are. Anyone who has an older sibling, an older friend, or know any older kids who leave them out of a fun thing can appreciate this story and its outlook on life. ( )

Bailey Goes Camping is about a younger siblings who wants to do the things her older siblings get to do. Her parents fulfill her wishes by bringing camping into the home. This was a cute story. Many children struggle with wanting to grow up faster when they have older siblings. ( )

Bailey's older siblings go off on a camping trip, and Bailey feels left out. Fortunately, Bailey has some pretty awesome parents, who create the camping experience right at home - complete with toasted marshmallows.

Bailey wants to go camping like his brother and sister, but he is still too young. Baileys sibilings tell him that it is not that much fun. All we do is tell ghost stories, sleep in a tent, hunt for bears, eat hot dogs, and the best part is roasting marshmellows. After they leave bailey is sad and his dad tries to play with him to cheer him up. But it does not work Bailey just wants to go camping. His tells him its not that much fun and Bailey said yes it is! Momma has a great idea! She tells Bailey he go camping right now at home! His parents set everything up just like Bailey imagined! ( )

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.
