About the Book:

Everyone’s favorite classroom pet is now starring in chapter books!

Humphrey has had lots of adventures as the classroom pet of Room 26, but never one like this. He is going on a campout in the backyard with Heidi and her friends! There’s stargazing, roasting marshmallows, searching for creepy-crawlies—and then there are the prank-loving boys next door, who want to prove that the girls are scaredy-cats.

Humphrey doesn’t think girls are scaredy-cats. He doesn’t think girls are like cats at all. Can this VERY-VERY-VERY small hamster show them with a hairy-scary trick of his own?

With sweet illustrations and an easy reading level, Humphrey’s Tiny Tales are hamster-iffic for emerging readers.

My Thoughts:

This cute little book is the third in the Humphrey’s Tiny Tales series for kids ages 5-8.  In this story, Humphrey goes camping with some girls from his classroom. The boys next door are camping too, and soon it turns into a contest to see if either group can scare the other.
It’s a fun story that kids can relate to and enjoy. There are black and white pictures on most pages, large text, and short chapters that are easy to read and comprehend. Boys and girls alike will enjoy Humphrey’s Tiny Tales, so if you have a child starting out with chapter books, this is a good choice.
