In this story, a dog named ウィンリー goes on a camping trip in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Camping in the mountains can be fun and exciting, but especially hot summer days can also carry some big hidden dangers.
Publisher: NPO Tagengo Tadoku
Length: 10 pages
The illustrations here reminded me of comics I read as a child! I also liked the choice of having the dog as the main character going camping: it made me giggle when I realized the dog was driving the car on one page.
The story uses a basic vocabulary with only one slightly more uncommon word per page. Combined with the pictures and the simple grammar it’s fairly easy to understand everything in this book with a reading comprehension around N5.
