We used to do a lot of cloud gazing on a hot summer’s day. What’s that? Lying down on the grass and glancing up at the clouds, seeing what images each cloud made. In The Camping Trip by Nirja S. Khemka, readers will learn that Nina, Luna, and Henry also enjoy doing that. “That cloud looks like a dinosaur with a sharp spike on his head” and “that one looks like a rabbit with pointed ears.” It’s a simple, creative way to enjoy a hot summer afternoon, especially when camping with the family as the three mouse siblings are doing. Nina and her mouse family are on a camping trip and they’re enjoying all the wonders of the great outdoors, as well as the wonders of just being together and doing things as a family. There’s neither high-tech gear in this family’s backpacks nor on their agenda. It’s all wilderness fun and learning.

Nirja S. Khemka’s early chapter book The Camping Trip is an easy read for young readers. It’s a simple story accompanied by spectacular illustrations that will have every young reader yearning to enjoy the great outdoors and some good, wholesome family entertainment. The plot follows the family’s journey into the wilderness to set up camp, explore, and learn about the wonders all around them. A descriptive narrative is well used and the dialogue is effective and helps develop the characters. The author makes this a fun read with a few made-up mouse words that add humor to the story, like mousetastic and mousy. A great story that is engaging, entertaining and educational. The author has presented a simple family tale full of fun, learning, creative entertainment, and good family time, all of which highlight collaboration and building mutual self-esteem.
