Bailey Goes Camping

Kevin Henkes (1997), HarperTrophy

Bailey’s siblings were Bunny Scouts and they were going camping. Bailey had to stay home because he was too little to go camping. Betty and Bruce talked about all of the fun stuff they were going to do while camping. Bailey did not want to play baseball or bake cookies or read a book. He wanted to go camping. Mama said that Bailey could go camping right at home, so they ate hot dogs and lived in a tent and went fishing and best of all, he roasted marshmallows.
