Summertime is vacation time for the Angelino family, and the two Angelino boys are excited about their upcoming camping trip. They’re going to the local state park, where they can swim, go fishing, and look for wildlife!

Being on vacation doesn’t mean the boys have to be careful. An encounter with a sneezing deer provides their father with an opportunity to teach the boys about respecting wildlife and staying alert for danger. Knowing more about the park’s wildlife helps the boys have more fun while staying safe. They discover staying quiet and moving slowly makes it easier to see the animals and birds that call the park home.

At the camp, the boys have responsibilities like the rest of the family. When they neglect one of these responsibilities and lie about it, they wind up in trouble—and learn an important lesson.

Beautifully illustrated, A Trail of Honesty teaches children about honesty while explaining actions have consequences. J. A. Angelo’s delightful story is an ideal way for parents to use consequences to teach children how to be better people—not simply to punish them.

My Review:

I do enjoy anything to do with camping! The Angelino Family head out camping for their family vacation. They swim, play badminton, and hike the trails. Through some experiences along the way, the family is presented with some great teachable moments. The children learn how to react when you come across a wild animal. They also learn why it’s important to dispose of your garbage properly. I enjoyed this little book and think it would make a great camp series!

I am more than ready for some dry camping weather so we can get back to weekends away and back to photographing our experiences.


Thank you to BookBuzz, J. A. Angelo and NetGalley for this e-copy, my opinions are my own.


Happy Reading Friends!❤️
