When James and Eamon go to a week of Nature Camp and stay at Eamon's grandparents' house, it turns out that their free time spent staying inside, eating waffles, and playing video games is way more interesting than nature. But sometimes things work out best when they don't go exactly as planned.  

This Caldecott Honor-winning book is a moving and hilarious celebration of young boys, childhood friendships, and the power of the imagination, where Marla Frazee captures the very essence of summer vacation and what it means to be a kid.

My class is a self-contained 5th/6th grade special education classroom. The majority of students in the district are low-income. The district created this classroom two years ago. I am trying to create a classroom library with high interest/easy readability books. The average reading level of my students is second grade.
