The Bugville Critters Go To Camp! By Robert Stanek... And Buster is Not Thrilled About it!

"Tomorrow" says Dad as he helps Buster get ready for bed, "you'll be going to camp."

"Camp?" Buster asks, a little worried. "Already?"

"It's going to be fun, you'll see" says Dad. "You're going to make new friends and have fun like a young bug should."

"Will it be scary?" Buster asks, pulling the covers up close.

"Now Buster," says Mom as she kisses him goodnight, "You just settle down. You have nothing to worry about." But Buster wasn't so sure...


The Bugville Critters
Go to Camp

By Robert Stanek

Buster may have had dreams the night before he would be traveling to camp, but he was still worried when he woke up and they all piled into the car to drive there.

He asked his father whether he had gone to camp when he was young and he assured him that he had. Then his mother told him that she had as well and that those days were some of the best she'd ever had.

You could almost hear Buster thinking, Yeah, right!

When they arrived at the camp, they could hear singing! Buster's mother told everybody to hurry so they could get registered... But Buster still held back... He even asked if he had to stay at Camp for this year! He sure didn't get the 
answer he wanted!  I found somebody else that felt like Buster and she stopped by to tell you how she feels...

There were already many other bugs playing and singing, but the lines to sign up were long.  Then he saw another bug about his age, who was looking just as worried as him... He couldn't figure out why all the parents were smiling and taking pictures and enjoying themselves! At least there is somebody else who is not happy, he thought. Maybe they could be friends.

Soon he was saying goodbye to his parents and being escorted to his cabin where five other bugs already had been assigned. He took the last vacant bunk... He wondered if he'd be able to sleep here... He was still very worried...

Before he could even really get to know his roommates, they were all called out to play "meet-and-greet" games and would be playing against groups that were assigned to different cabins... and then there would be singing...

Was Buster going to be okay at Camp? If you want to find out more about going to camp, do check this book out!  Now I've never gone to camp, so I learned a lot about what they might do there. I admit though that I'm like Buster and am worried about being there all by myself without anybody I know. Will you be there? Maybe we could be friends? Do check out this book and tell me what you think about going! And, you know, I really do like to sing...

Enjoy this full-color delightful story with beautifully created bug characters, including Buster's entire family! Your children will be delighted to meet them and there is a whole series starring Buster, so be sure to check out what else is available... Highly recommended!
