Walker Books 2016 $28.00hb 28pp
ISBN 978 1 92197778 7
Themes: Camping holidays/ Family togetherness/ Stories in rhyme
There are 28 pages here describing the sort of camping holiday it would be wonderful to think children still experience - making new friends/ cooking on the BBQ/ swimming in the sea/ boiling the billy/ peeing in the long-drop/ singing round the campfire – and not a tablet or mobile in sight.  Text that cries out to be read aloud and generous illustrations in water-colour and ink spread over every double page,
Preschool up/ Age 3 up
