Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Franklin the turtle and his other anthropomorphic animal friends are going to the museum on a class trip. Franklin is excited until he learns the museum contains real dinosaurs-then he becomes afraid and tries to avoid that section of the building. Finally Franklin faces his fear, literally, and realizes how silly he has been. Franklin fans will enjoy this book, which may be a helpful prelude to a first-time field trip.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-As in her earlier titles about the turtle, Bourgeois describes a situation that most children will find familiar. This time, Franklin is going to a museum with his classmates. He can't wait to go, until he hears from Beaver that, "There are real dinosaurs inside." Terrified, Franklin and his friend Snail worry throughout the entire visit, until they find themselves face to face with a Tyrannosaurus rex-and learn that all that's left of the dinosaurs are their bones. Clark's bright illustrations capture the expressions of Franklin and his friends as they explore the museum-from their joy when dressing up as knights in the medieval room to their fear of the dinosaur exhibit. This book will make a good read-aloud, both one-on-one and in a storytime setting. Children who have been to museums will see plenty of familiar things, and those who haven't may find themselves eager to take a trip to see the dinosaurs and more.-Dina Sherman, Brooklyn Children's Museum, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
