As you read the story below substitute the underlined information with yours. This is just a sample story; your book will be made using the information you submit to us (listed above)

  • Page 1 – Book title and picture illustrations
  • Page2 - More picture illustrations
  • Page 3 – "My Camping Adventure" was created especially for Michael Jeremy Smith at the age of 8, with love from Grandma and Grandpa - May 5 ,1999

It was "old Teddy Bear," the hermit, who told grandpa the story of the mountain’s treasure. Now Grandpa would pass the story along to Mike. "It’s over that ridge," grandpa told Mike. "We’ll have to camp overnight."

  • Page 4 – "We better check our supplies, Mike. We wouldn’t want to forget anything, "said grandpa. Mike’s friends, Billy, Wayne, and Joey, were there to help load the van. Everyone was very curious about the treasure.
  • Page 5 – Picture illustrations
  • Page 6 – More picture illustrations
  • Page 7 – there was so much camping gear that Mike, Billy, Wayne, and Joey had to get behind Grandpa and push to make it all fit. Finally, the van was packed. Everyone squeezed in, and off they went. The adventure had begun!
  • Page 8 – It was a long day of traveling, and the children were tired. The setting sun stirred the natural sounds of the forest. After everyone made camp, Wayne studied the map with Mike. "Look, Mike, we’ll go this way."
  • Page 9 – Picture illustrations
  • Page 10 – More picture illustrations
  • Page 11 - That night, Mike could hear an owl hooting in the distance. He found it very difficult to sleep. Everyone was so excited about the treasure! The snoring coming from Grandpa didn’t help matters either.
  • Page 12 – Finally, morning came, and everyone was up early and ready to go. "We want to be sure not to leave any trash behind, so let’s clean up our campsite," ordered Grandpa.

"Here is some paper," said Joey, while ripping it up and stuffing it into the trash bag. Mike thought the paper looked a lot like the map. No…it couldn’t be.

  • Page 13 – Picture illustrations
  • Page 14 – More picture illustrations
  • Page 15 – "It’s a rough trail, and we’ll have to go by horseback," said Grandpa. "Mike, stay close to Billy, Wayne and Joey."

"Don’t worry, grandpa. You can count on me," said Mike. Grandpa was glad to have Mike with them.

  • Page 16 – Up the mountain, the trail became narrow and winding. Mike was amazed at the beautiful plant life surrounding them. Finally, everyone stopped for lunch.

"Who has the map?" asked Grandpa.

"Not me," said Mike.

"Not me," said Wayne.

"Not me, said Joey.

"It’s gone!" exclaimed Mike. "How will we ever find the treasure?"

"Hmmm…" said Grandpa. "Perhaps I can remember the way."

  • Page 17 – Picture illustrations
  • Page 18 – More picture illustrations
  • Page 19 – Grandpa seemed confident about the way to the treasure. This made Mike feel better about the lost map. "Let’s catch some fish for lunch!" Grandpa said. Mike, Billy, Wayne and Joey cast their lines into the clear mountain stream. Mike immediately hooked a big fish…big enough for everyone to eat.
  • Page 20 – While everyone helped prepare dinner, Grandpa spoke to Mike, Billy, Wayne and Joey. "When I was a young cub like you, I met Old Teddy bear, the hermit, out here in these very woods. I’ll tell you his story tonight after dinner." The food was served and everyone ate until they could eat no more.
  • Page 21 – Picture illustration
  • Page 22 – More picture illustrations
  • Page 23 – That night, Mike, Billy, Wayne and Joey gathered around the campfire with Grandpa. Speaking very softly, Grandpa began to tell the story….

"The old hermit told me of the mountain’s great treasures many years ago. He said only the wisest of bears would discover the treasure’s true value. Tomorrow, we will travel down the mountain stream."

  • Page 24 – The next morning brought dew and beautiful singing birds. Mike smelled the fresh, clean air as they paddled away in their canoe. Mike reminded everyone to put on a life jacket.
  • Page 25- Picture illustrations
  • Page 26 – More picture illustrations
  • Page 27 – Billy leaned over to get a life jacket and fell headfirst into the cold mountain stream. "Help!" Billy cried. Everyone was alarmed. Mike quickly grabbed a life jacket and threw it out to help Billy swim ashore.
  • Page 28 – Mike helped Billy out of the stream and onto the grassy bank. Grandpa put an arm around Mike. "That was quick thinking, Mike," said Grandpa. "I’m very proud of you. Next time, we’ll all remember to put on our life jackets before we get in the canoe."
  • Page 29 – Picture illustrations
  • Page 30 – More picture illustrations
  • Page 31 – Later that day, grandpa told everyone to gather around. "How much farther, grandpa?" asked Mike.

"We are here," Grandpa remarked, to everyone’s surprise.

"But where’s the treasure?" asked Mike.

"Don’t you see?" said Grandpa. It’s all around us, and it’s been here all along. It’s the natural sounds of the forest. It’s in the green trees, the fresh air and clean water. These things are the real treasures of the mountain.’

  • Page 32 – At first, Mike, Billy, Wayne and Joey were puzzled. Then, Mike realized what Grandpa meant! He envisioned the old hermit telling Grandpa that only the wisest of the bears could find the real treasure of the mountain…. and he was right!
  • Page 33 – Picture illustrations
  • Page 34 – More picture illustrations
  • Page 35 – Mike would always remember this special camping adventure, and would tell all of his friends in Atlanta about his discovery of the real treasures of the mountain.
