Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
People take field trips to visit new places and learn new things. Some people take field trips to farms. Some farms raise plants; some farms raise animals; some farms do both. Rice grows in paddies. Cranberries float in bogs. Farmers shear sheep on sheep farms. They milk cows on dairy farms. Tractors work in fields in corn farms. Each page features a colorful photograph with one sentence of text underneath. Although the series is about field trips, only one picture shows several children in a farm setting. A couple of pictures have a single child in them, but most show adults with no evidence that children are anywhere in the vicinity. 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.
