Overview

What tunnel is named after a Boston Red Sox baseball player? Who were the Minutemen? What's a triple-decker, and where do Bostonians celebrate the Fourth of July? Join Abby and her friends on their class trip to Boston and learn the answers to these questions and more. Meet some of Boston's famous people, including Phillis Wheatley, America's first African American poet, and John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States. Take a tour of the city's historic neighborhoods, from elegant Back Bay to busy Chinatown to the North End, home of the Revolutionary War hero Paul Revere. Come along as Abby and her classmates hike the Freedom Trail, visit the site of the Boston Tea Party, and hop aboard Old Ironsides, the oldest ship in the U. S. Navy. They'll even teach you how to make an authentic sailor's windsock so that you'll always know which way the wind blows!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6–This series follows students in fictional fourth-grade classes as they prepare for and go on on visits to noteworthy American cities. As each group prepares for its field trip, the students are asked to research the city, and their “reports” become chapters on the city's history, geography, populations, sports, popular culture, and landmarks. The last section describes the children visiting some of attractions they have learned about. Maps and attractive color photos and illustrations, a “Just the Facts” page with basic information, time lines, and instructions for craft projects add to the text. Although the premise of the series is best described as a gimmick, these books will help young readers learn about and become more interested in some of America's most important cities.
