2. A book review from Publisher's Weekly says, "Mrs. Shepherd's class of twenty-three students is going on a field trip to the farm. On the bus, the students recite the rules. ("Be polite. Stay with chaperones.") And, when they reach Fandangle's Organic Environmentally Friendly Farm, the chaperones repeat their responsibilities. ("No losing any students.") As they proceed from barn to dairy and so on, the chaperones and children count each student. In successive groupings of numbers...more

This was a fun book about a class field trip to a farm. However, every time the class moves onto the next area, Juan is always missing. This would be great for a math lesson because before the class moves on to the next thing at the zoo the chaperones count the students by using different methods. For example they say we have 4 sets of 5 plus two extra, or three sets of 7 plus one extra. Its a great way for kids to practice math, as well as read.
Field Trip Day is another entertaining tale by Lynn Plourde about Mrs. Shepherd and her unique group of students. Today the class and their chaperones are headed off to Fandangle’s Organic Environmentally Friendly Farm. Trying to keep tabs of twenty-three children is more challenging than it sound due to Juan Dore-Nomad, a curious boy who learns by observing everything around him. (Especially observing things happening anywhere other than where the class is.) Numerous head counts are taken, all...more

In this book, Miss Shepherd's class went on a field trip. They saw the cows. They saw the chickens. They saw the sheep. And they went back. After they went to the cows, someone got lost. After they went to the hens, the same person got lost. After they went to the sheep, the same person got lost. And they found him before they went to the next places. I liked this book because the class was going on a field trip. -by Felicity

Grades 1-3. It's field trip day, and we're going to the farm. This book has a LOT going on. First, how to act on a field trip-- stay with the group, ride a bus, etc. Next, there is counting/addition-- different groups add up to 22 but one child is always missing. Last, readers learn about farms and how they have changed with automated milkers, etc. There are a LOT of words and ideas that make this a pretty complex book.

Its field trip day in Ms. Shepherds class, to a farm. One student, Juan, was a little more excited then everyone else. He keeps getting lost and discovering new things. This book also shows different ways to count to 23.
Nice book, but I felt that the author tried to fit too much stuff into one book. I liked the environmental/organic theme best of all, but it all felt a little thrown-together to me.

I write kids' books--talk about a FUN job! I worked for 21 years as a speech-language therapist in Maine schools. When I got married, I got 3 & 4-year-old stepsons as part of my ready-made family. I read the boys picture books at bedtime. They fell asleep after 2 or 3 books, but I kept reading stacks and stacks of picture books and started to dream . . . maybe I could write picture books. I wa...more
