Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—In this excellent series, children are introduced to a wide variety of possible field trips. Each book starts with the same two sentences and then turns to describing a type of excursion and what students might experience. For example, Concert covers pop, symphony, opera, choral, and marching-band performances. Every title concludes with a section about how visitors should act and a question that tests their comprehension. This series has a challenging vocabulary and there are no pronunciation guides. Some situations depicted in the large, clear photos may be unfamiliar to students, e.g., sumo wrestling in Stadium, rice farming in Farm, and an indoor beach in Beach, and the many new scenarios and places described, like field trips themselves, will expand their horizons.
Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
People take field trips to visit new places. People take field trips to learn new things. Some people take field trips to zoos. They can see many different animals in zoos. Zookeepers feed the animals and sometimes they teach people about the animals they care for. Visitors can touch the animals in petting zoos. They can see underwater animals in aquariums. Animals can be observed in natural habitats on wildlife reserves. A city zoo may be near tall buildings. Different types of birds can be observed in a bird park. Readers are cautioned to not feed the animals and to not put hands through fences when visiting zoos. The brief introduction to each type of zoo appears on two facing pages with color photographs accompanied by simple sentences. Most of the pictures include a child or a group of children who could be there on a field trip. Includes a table of contents, a picture glossary (4 words), and an index. Part of the "A World of Field Trips" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
