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 libraries. These are places where people go to read and learn. Libraries have many books. They may also have computers and music. People borrow books from libraries. Everything has its own place to be in a library. Librarians help people find things. Pupils can do class work in school libraries. People go to public libraries to read and learn. They can listen to music in a music library. Special libraries may show very old books. . Each page features a colorful photograph with one sentence of text underneath. Although the series is about field trips, none of the pictures show groups of children visiting a library together. About half of the pictures do feature either one child or two children. The book reads like a listing of loosely related facts. It includes a table of contents, a picture glossary (two words), an index, and notes to parents and teachers with suggestions for sharing the book with children. This is part of the "World of Field Trips" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
