Bookworm Nook: {Camping}

Camping Books 3 - Girls of a Feather

Camping season is underway. Usually, the activities I bring for possible “down time” are far, far too many. In the end, the kids just run around the woods, collecting sticks and bugs and finding secret hide-out spots. And the adults cut wood, organize wet boxes of graham crackers and half-eaten bags of marshmallows, and attempt to keep tents somewhat clump-free.

But every once in a while, as the day winds down, there is a moment to read. Sometimes we read to the kids out loud around the campfire or in the warm glow of the tent. The wind blows or we hear a stick snap in the woods behind us, and the stories become just a little more vivid than usual. Or maybe you have a moment alone in the camp site to sit in the sun and put a few chapters of your own book under your belt.

In the case that you have one of those moments, here are some camping book ideas, both for littles and bigs.

Happy camping, happy reading!
