Calmenson, Stephanie Ollie’s Class Trip: A Yes-and No Book 24 pgs. Holiday House, 2015. $15.95 PICTURE BOOK
class is going on a class trip. Since this is a first for Ollie, his imagination
takes over as to where and what will happen. Are they going to the moon? No.
Are they sliding down a rainbow? No. How will they get there? Kites? No. In
between each journey into Ollie’s creative mind there is a dose of reality…Ollie
can’t find his buddy what should he do? Tell his teacher. Yes. Eventually all
the Yes’s of a safe field trip are laid out.
fantastic book for Kindergarten teachers! I can’t think of a better introduction
to the concept of field trips and to start a discussion about the rules and
expected behavior. The artwork wasn’t my favorite but its creative and the
pages are large and easy to show off. I am showing this to the teachers ASAP.
