I would describe this book as cute and fun. a good way to cheer up the youngest in the family

Cute book for the "too young to go on an outing" syndrome. Mothers can be so creative and Bailey's mother invents a way for him to go camping at home, when he cannot go with siblings on a real camp-out. Fun read!

As the youngest child in the family, I know what it is like to be left out and be told "you're too young". This is the exact story in this book. The older brother gets to go camping, but the youngest is told he can not go, but maybe in a few years. His mother is creative and lets him do everything his brother is going to do when he goes to camp. This makes the youngest happy and he is so excited. This mother was creative and I thought this book is great to read to the youngest child in the family!

Baily wants to go camping. He was too little. He went camping in his house and it ended with him falling asleep. I like the book because it is fun.
