Illustrated by Abby Carter
In this latest Yes-and-No book, Ollie is going on a class trip. Where will he go? To a rainbow? NO! To the moon? NO! To an aquarium? YES! Funny call-and-response text and zany pictures involve children in the reading process and make learning school rules fun.
Book 2: Ollie’s Class Trip
“As a read-aloud choice, it’s hard to beat a picture book with funny Q&A text, particularly when it sets up forward momentum that keeps kids from getting sidetracked for too long. With its built-in bits of practical info, this rollicking picture book is highly recommended before a class trip but great fun for reading aloud any old time.” —Booklist
“This is an interactive book so very good for reading outloud – multiple times! Kids will join in the responses. It is an exuberant story about a class trip with even more exuberant illustrations!” —Youth Services Book Review, Massachusetts
“Identical in style to Ollie’s School Day…this useful picture book explores the details of Ollie’s class field trip to the aquarium through a highly interactive yes/no format… the large pages make this a great choice for classroom carpet sharing. There’s also plenty of field-trip etiquette rolled into the simple story…making this a requisite choice for prepping early elementary classrooms for the first fall field trip.” —Bulletin for the Center of Children’s Books
“It’s easy to imagine the participation this will spark…a good choice to share with classes before a field trip.” —Kirkus Reviews
