Beginning Reader Review of Camping Out by Lisa Ann Marsoli

Read for: Early Reader Challenge
Synopsis: "Clifford Big Red Readers show kids that it's fun to learn to read!

When Emily Elizabeth and Clifford go camping with their friends, Jetta is sure it's going to be boring, so she brings all the comforts of home, including a TV, microwave, CD player and headphones, and motorized scooter. But she soon realizes that there's more than one way to have a good time, and sometimes the simple way is just perfect."

My Review: This is a good level 2 reader, especially for those Clifford fans. This one coordinated well with our summer activities as we attempt our first camping trip. It is a great way to introduce the idea of camping and not having all the stuff you have at home. It has simple sentences and easy words but also some to push young readers to learn new ones and sound them out.
My Rating: This is a great book for those young tech obsessed children, a reminder to enjoy the world around us (especially after the release of Pokémon Go, but don't get me started on that).  I give it a rating of Three Paws.
