Museum Trip

by Barbara Lehman

Houghton Mifflin 2006

Ages: All ages

Topic: Books without Words

A little boy goes to a museum with his class and gets separated from the others. He imagines that he becomes a part of the exhibits and finally, he hears his classmates in the room next to him and joins them, just in time to board the school bus.

This is a wonderful book because a child can tell his own story as he follows the illustrations by the Caldecott Honor illustrator of The Red Book. I wished I had a book like this to "read" while I was learning English. This book will be released in May 2006.
