Camp Shalom, Reading Together

I'm a big believer in reading all types of books to my child. Despite being just 2, Miles and I read anything from board books, to non-fiction early readers and, of course, picture books on all subjects.
Picnic at Camp Shalom offers so much to my young reader, even if he's not quite the intended audience! I give a lot of credit to Deb for including so many beautiful woodland animals, character features, and other camp details that give us things to find and laugh about. She made a bird pooping on a little camper boy's hat - you know that earned some big belly laughs! Deb also did a wonderful job with consistency - something that Miles is VERY mindful of. If you spoke of, then showed him a beaded necklace in one spread, he wants to see it again. Nice work Deb. We find something new every time we read it, and I can't wait til he's old enough to understand the big 'twist' ending to the story of two very charming girls' friendship.
Remember to leave a comment in order to participate in a book giveaway! You have until Saturday. Winner will be announced Sunday. Good luck!
