Book Verdict

A World of Field Trips Sereis
by Capstone Press/Acorn

Series Review
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.
