A child¿s imagination soars as he/she reads about history and science facts and actual places that exist. The illustrations are brought to life as the child¿s creative mind absorbs educational information but don¿t close your eyes. Their mind may wonder to the bottom of the ocean or take a journey to the center of the earth. Could the center of the earth be like hot fudge on a sundae? The class trips are adventures that all children will not want to miss as they read how Mrs. Green lines up her students alphabetically while flying in a plane. She opens the planes door hatch, checks the children¿s parachutes and pushes them out. The students are graded on their ground landings.
