My Review:

This is a delightful picture book for young children. It shares the fears of the lovely little owl character, Little Hoo, as he goes on his first family camping trip. This is a great story for reassuring youngsters, giving explanations about what happens, what he hears and shows how, after all, it turns out to be something enjoyable and not scary at all. This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I will certainly look out for some of the others after reading this one. The colourful illustrations are very child friendly and appealing and the story could certainly be used to help reassure any child going camping for the first time or just as a fun bedtime story.

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.


It’s time for the Hoo family to go on their annual camping trip, but Little Hoo is a little bit nervous. From setting up a tent, to cooking dinner over the fire, to sleeping with spooky noises, camping has a lot of new things for Little Hoo to experience. With characteristic gentleness, this book takes little ones along with Little Hoo on an adventure that eventually turns out to be a fun, and not scary, time. Little Hoo Goes Camping is part of the Little Hoo series featuring cute and reassuring texts for toddlers and preschoolers. Little Hoo books are available in English, Spanish, and bilingual editions.
