School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-In each of these offerings, a guide gives a class a tour of the designated location, providing basic information about its high points. Simple, digitally prepared illustrations show what each area looks like, but lack visual stimuli. A hand holding a sheet of paper with additional facts appears on the bottom right corner of each page. Both volumes end with an activity-creating a fossil dig for a make-believe science exhibit and making a grocery list and purchasing the items on it in order to cook a meal-that seems a little daunting for youngsters to do without a lot of assistance. Teachers may be able to use these materials for prepping students prior to field trips, but otherwise, the books do not hold much appeal.-Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
