Go Camping with Picture Books

My parents were (and still are) pretty cool – they’d pack all four of us up (with the dog), maybe some cousins and we’d go camping all around western PA in the summer. We had a small pop-up camper and I absolutely loved every minute of it! So I’ve created a short list of picture books about enjoying the outdoors and going camping!
