Staff Reviews

As a former Girl Scout camp counselor I'm always drawn to books about camp and this little cutie won me over. Who wouldn't want to go camping with T. Rex and his friends?! Just make sure you have your wilderness guidebook for the dos and don'ts of the forest. Grab a bag of marshmallows and enjoy camping with Rex and friends!

Heather G.


What could be more fun than a camping trip with a good friend?

When that friend is T. Rex!

It’s important to set a few wilderness safety guidelines first. . . like making sure he stays on the trail. And does not disturb the local wildlife. And knows how to build a safe campfire. But sometimes dinosaurs have a different way of doing things, and that’s why it’s best to be prepared . . . for anything!

Following in the extremely large and funny footsteps of Tea Rex, Camp Rex is for anyone who loves to roast a marshmallow or two around the campfire . . . or the whole bag at once!
