Going to a Beachby Rebecca Rissman
This book teaches readers about what field trips are, why people take field trips, and what you can learn from a field trip to a beach.
Children's Literature - Phyllis KennemerPeople take field trips to visit new places and learn new things. When visiting beaches, they go to places near water. They may discover that some beaches are covered in pebbles; others are covered in sand. Some beaches have black sand. Some are rocky. Children like to visit beaches with sand dunes which are fun to climb. Some beaches are built by humans under large roofs. Children like to press their toes in warm sand. It is advisable to wear sunscreen at the beach and only go into the water when adults are nearby. Each page features a colorful photograph with one sentence of text underneath. Although the series is about field trips, only a few of the pictures show groups of children on the beach together. The book reads like a listing of loosely related facts. It includes a table of contents, a picture glossary (four words), an index, and notes to parents and teachers with suggestions for sharing the book with children. It is part of the "World of Field Trips" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
