Reviews - What do customers think about Stella and Roy Go Camping?
nice pictures, story a little weak Jul 9, 2008
I got this because my 3 and 5 year old love to camp with their dad and I thought this would be a nice story. It follows 2 children and their mother and they hike and the younger boy follows footprints. The annoying part is that the older sister is constantly telling her younger brother that he's wrong, that everything he sees in terms of footprints is not the one he thinks it is, kinda of a "know it all". So I change the words to sound more friendly. But I have no idea why this is necessary, to show siblings saying rude things to one another: is this how adults talk to each other in the real world? I gave it 3 stars for the subject of camping and the ok pictures, but the words were written poorly and there might be a better book out there.
Realistic and interesting Nov 13, 2007
This is one of the few realistic and up-to-date books I've read to my six-year-old son about going camping. In addition, it has great illustrations and a surprise ending to keep children interested. My son can relate to it because he has gone backpacking with us.

Nice book for introducing camping to preschoolers Aug 3, 2004
I read this book to my integrated preschool class, most of whom have never been camping. It was a nice realistic introduction to camping with vivid illustrations and characters that the children could relate to(previously I had only been able to find camping books whose main characters were nonhuman.) The camping experience in the story is true to life, touching on many details including making a safe campfire and even putting food in a bear proof containter. The story is interesting enough and the sibling relationship universal enough that my students were interested in the story without feeling like I was instructing them about camping. One nice feature was that throughout the story Stella and Roy would refer to a guidebook to discern which animals made tracks in the dirt and the illustrations were detailed and visible enough that my students could participate in Stella and Roy's discovery. On the last page of the book there are also descriptions and illustrations of the animal tracks for the reader to explore if they wish. This is also a nice book for children who have already been camping because they will likely be able to relate to it and compare it to their own experiences.
Follow Stella and Roy to remember your own family adventure. Oct 18, 1999
Ever go camping? Stella and Roy and their mother won't forget this trek. Young readers won't either. This charming book will invite you and your youngster back again, over and over all through the year, to search out the wildlife hidden long the trail. Although set in Yosemite, the story can easily be translated into where you live. Talking over the family's last summer adventure and anticipating the next one will be the natural outcome of sharing this amusing tale of sibling interaction.
