Beginning Reader Book Review: P.J. Funnybunny Camps Out
P.J. Funnybunny Camps Out
Written by: Marilyn Sadler
Illustrated by: Roger Bollen
Published by: Random House, 1993
Illus. in full color. Camping is not for girls, right? At least, that's what P.J. and his pals tell Donna and Honey Bunny when they want to tag along on a camping trip. But when two mysterious ghosts frighten the boys all the way home, only the girls know the "real" story.
* My son picked this book off of the beginning chapter book shelves at the library. I didn't really like when P.J. told his sister that "Camping is not for girls." I asked my son, is he right? Can girls go camping? I was very relieved when my son told me that girls can go camping (which we have done before as a family!). However, in the end, the girls prevail. This was a good book to practice predicting. When I had my son make some predictions he ended up being partly correct. When I made my prediction and ended up being correct, my kids accused me of reading the book before! Overall, this was a cute story about a bunny and his friends who attempt to go on a camping trip but end up being frightened and run home.
This book was borrowed from the library.
