Franklin and his friend Bear have an exciting outdoor adventure with their dads in this new picture book based on an episode of the popular television series. Franklin and Bear can hardly wait to set out on the camping trip with their fathers. They will canoe across two lakes and pitch tents on a the beach of a deserted island-"just like real explorers." The two friends soon learn that exploring can be hard work. First, they tip the canoe over and get wet. Then, they have to trudge a mile overland lugging their heavy backpacks. By the time they reach the opposite shore, their arms are sore and the beach is crowded with other campers. But they manage to find a perfect campsite, and they even have enough energy left for a moonlight swim.
