Missy is a bright fun hyper girl who is so so excited to go on a
field to trip to her state’s capitol building. She can’t wait to visit the gift
shop. Her assigned buddy Oscar is excited to but in a different way, he wants
to meet the governor and see the place where bills are made into laws. When
they arrive, they see tons of interesting things, but are both disappointed to
find out that not only isn’t there a gift shop but they aren’t going to meet
the governor. Missy decides to take matters into her own hands and drags Oscar
along for the ride.
Though this is book#4 in the series, it easily functions as a
read-alone. What a fun book, I am going to buy the whole series for my school
library based just on this read. It includes a memorable main character, an
interesting plot that includes some learning elements, and excellent color
illustrations on every page. Perfect for 1-2 graders, it’s a great crossover
from early readers into easy chapter books, and does a great job keeping the
vocabulary at this level.
