Childrens Books about Camping

This summer I have the great opportunity to join Zina at Let’s Lasso the Moon and Tiffany at Peanut Blossom in Melissa & Doug’s On the Go Traveling with Kids Series. As part of our preparation, I sought out and vetted great children’s books on the topic. My most fond memories of camping trips include long stretches of reading alone and out loud. Books have always been a big part of getting outdoors to connect with nature. There is something about a book that grounds a person. So we use books as a way to introduce our children to the idea of camping, to make it fun and engaging for them. Here is my list of children’s books for camping:

When We Go Camping Childrens Books about Camping is perhaps my favorite. The illustrations are gorgeous and there is a rhythm to the whole book of which I want to be a part. This book truly connects a child to nature and to wildlife. There is a lot of learning within its pages. Your child will certainly be engaged in learning more after reading this book.

Fred and Ted Go Camping (Beginner Books(R)) Childrens Books about Camping is Peter Eastman at his best. Weaves in opposites and the idea that different approaches to doing things may just work out all right. This book is a lot of fun.

Toasting Marshmallows: Camping Poems Childrens Books about Camping is a must have book of simply yet lovely poems. The book will leave you and your children with a lot of happiness. I enjoy how the author integrates sights and sounds of camping truly bringing the experience alive for kids and adults.

  1. unfortunately my only experience with camping was in summer camp as a kid. I remember no bathroom, lots of mosquitoes and partly raw food. I still would have tried going with my kids when they were young if either me or my husband wold have been handy with tents and stuff. Since we’re not it would have been a disaster but, Is till only think that we somehow missed out by not doing it.

  2. Thanks for the book recommendations. Our family was just looking for picture books about camping, hiking and canoeing. Looking forward to sharing the great outdoors with our little one.

  3. Great book selection for small children, my 11 year old is a little harder to pin down to a book. We,ve found short stories work better for him, (between video games). We just returned from our annual vacation. We spent three weeks camping in a motor home and had a wonderful time. Mark Justice @camping equipment, camping supplies, camping gear
