One day a kid and his dad go camping. When they got to the camp, an animal was already living there. So, they had to go back to a different camp. The Dad liked the new camp. Then the kid showed him around the lake in the canoe. He pushed on the ground to hard and it sank. The Dad decided to go fishing. The kid caught a very big fish. When he was cooking it, a bear came and ate it. They went to sleep next and the dad read him a book.

This book made me laugh because the kid wanted to drive. It made me think about my dad because we go camping together with my brothers and sisters. It makes me want to go camping.

I recommend this book to all the kids that are learning how to read because it is a good beginners book.
