The Green Sweater Girl and the Overnight Camping Trip

It was the start of summer, and the Green Sweater Girl was ready for her first camping trip with her two best friends from school, Molly and Sam. With packed backpacks and walking sticks, they all headed out into the big backyard. 

“Fa, la, la off to camp we go,” they sang in chorus. The three friends laughed as they walked.

At the campsite, the Green Sweater Girl pulled out her Big Tree tent. Mama had helped her practice at the house. She knew what to do, but Molly and Sam didn’t know how to pitch a tent. Patiently, the Green Sweater Girl guided her friends through the process.

“First, we have to lay out the tent. Then we raise it up, but it will only work if we do it together,” she said, “One, two, three!” The tent was roomy and perfect for playing and sleeping.

Before bed, the Green Sweater Girl pulled out some cookies and milk from the cooler that Mama brought and watched a shooting star flash across the sky. “Thanks,” the Green Sweater Girl said to her friends. “I knew we could do it all on our own if we worked together.”

The tent protected the Green Sweater Girl, Molly, and Sam from wind, bugs, and the dew on the ground in the morning. The next day, the three friends told everyone about their camping adventure in the backyard.
