Episode Summary

Chris and Elmo are camping. They bring two sleeping bags and two canteens, one for each of them, and four hotdogs and four marshmallows, two for each of them.

A beaver emerges from the woods, and Elmo asks Chris if the beaver can stay for dinner (bark, please). Two turtles come along and Elmo invites them to stay for dinner, too (green leaves and dandelions, please). Then two raccoons appear, also ready for dinner (acorns and berries, please). It's time to dig in when four ducks arrive for their evening meal (snails, leaves, and bugs, please).

Finally, Chris, Elmo and all the animals eat dinner. Elmo and Chris both agree they should have a sleepover like this every night. Watch this episode with your child, and watch her build math skills while thinking about the great outdoors and the creatures in it!
