6 Great Camping Books For Kids

Great Camping Books For Kids

Story Sunday is all about promoting a love of literacy. Summer is the perfect time to engage young readers with topical and interesting material. Camping has long been a main summer event for many families, so this Story Sunday I’d like to highlight my top picks for camping books your children will love.

All rained out on your camping trip? Make sure you have a backup plan. My favorite? Snacks and a great book.

1. The Kids Campfire Book

Out of activity ideas while camping, at the cottage, or in you own backyard? This book sure isn’t. The perfect cure for “I’m bored”.

2. Cooking On A Stick

Any young camper will enjoy this exploration of fun campfire cooking. Great to read, try, and eat as a family.

3. Tracks Scats and Signs

Would your eight year old rather be glued to a screen than exploring the outdoors? What better way to get them outside and exploring nature then by talking about poop? These take-along guides are the perfect companion to a camping trip or a walk in the woods. The great illustrations and well presented information in these books will make anyone a burgeoning outdoor explorer.

4. The Take-Along Guide Series

So if it isn’t evident yet, I really like this series. Here are a few other titles that you might like to explore depending on your child’s interests. They are all amazing.

5. Sleeping In A Sack

Another great book from Linda White. This is the perfect read for first time campers to participate in the planning process and get excited about an upcoming trip.

6. A Child’s Introduction To The Night Sky 

Kiss the city smog goodbye and say hello to country air. Camping is the perfect time to introduce children to the cosmos. This book is the perfect accompaniment to a night of stargazing.
