Bailey Goes Camping

By Kevin Henkes

Going camping sounds great to Bailey. But he's too young to join his Bunny Scout brother and sister—so Mama and Papa show him him to camp right at home. Kids stuck at home for whatever reason will relate to Bailey, and parents will smile at the successful improvised solution created by his loving parents.

This sweet camping book can be used in speech therapy to address social/emotional issues like not getting what you want and coming up with creative solutions. It is also great for noticing character expressions and for targeting predicting as well as for /b/, /l/, and /k/ sounds!
