Come Count With Happy Campers!
by Heidi P. Rezaei

This cheerful rhyming children’s book tells the story of a cute family, who gather together with other campers at a local campground to enjoy a fun-filled day by the shore.

A very engaging and thought-provoking tale that starts sometime around late morning, Come Count With Happy Campers develops throughout the day with a series of fun activities and an increased number of people joining in the fun to close at midnight, all while teaching simple math skills. Come Count With Happy Campers is sure to charm readers.

Heidi’s Mom started reading to her when she was three months old. She started showing interest in reading herself by the time she was 15 months old, slightly before she started walking. At 2.5 years old, Heidi was reading baby books (3 letter words) on her own. By the time she finished her Senior Kindergarten at Kettle Lake Public School in Richmond Hill, ON, she was reading children’s small chapter books.

Heidi's Mom: 

“The idea of writing this book began one early February afternoon in 2015 when Heidi shared the following comment with me:

‘‘Mom! I wish I could write my own book.’’

And I responded: ‘‘I don’t see why not!’’

Heidi got to work immediately and drew up a chart (she had recently learned how to create one at school). She jotted down numbers 1 to 10 in one column and added words to rhyme with each number in a second column.

Then as Heidi began illustrations on scrap paper, she decided her story should be about a family out camping.

In the next three days, we refined the idea and reworked the wording to suit early readers /Grades 1 and 2.

That was how ‘Come Count with Happy Campers’ came to be!”  

Please join us in this wonderful Camping adventure!
