Let's get into the station wagon, roll those windows down,
Let's sing out loud and wave to cows as we drive out of town.
Let's park the car beneath the trees and trade our shoes for boots,
Let's set the timer, all say "Cheese!" then head into the woods.

In this cute book about a family's camping trip, the simple, rhyming text is enhanced by comical illustrations that bring wit and energy to every page. Packaged in a smaller size for little hands and easy to pack up, this book would be a perfect read-aloud during the car ride, along with a great way to recap a trip at the end. The illustrations inside the front cover serve as a reminder of things to pack, and the story inspires activities to plan. There is even a space in the back to paste apicture of the reader's own family trip. This little book serves as a loving tribute to family togetherness.

This book had me smiling from the very first page. The author tells a story about a simple family outing in the woods, but manages to convey so much more. There is fun, there is reality, there is love. She shows why being together with family is so valuable. The illustration were rich. So much so, that you could read this book over and over and see something new each time. The book is also packed with humor which makes any book fun.
I recommend this book for all ages. Even my teenage sons enjoyed it!

It’s nice to once in a while encounter a picture book without subtext, ulterior motive, or snark. We’ve grown accustomed to books that break down the fourth wall or upset our expectations. There is much to be said for a book that just wants to present a day in the life of an average American family in a straightforward manner. Perfect for hikers, wannabe hikers, big families, small families, and anyone that takes delight in seeing siblings and parents take delight in one another. Shocking in its lack of shocks, hiking finally has its day.

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Jul 23, 2013

“Let’s wake up extra early, / before the day gets hot. / Let’s pack a picnic, hurry up / – ready or not.” And with that we meet our intrepid family adventurers. A mom, a dad, their four kids, and a good-natured sheepdog head into the car for a day trip to a local forest for some low-key hiking. The usual trials and tribulations of moving any big family come up, but after a picnic, a dip in the local river, some games, and a hike on back to the car, the now thoroughly exhausted and happy family head on home and, justifiably, collapse as one.
