Reviews

Everyone's favorite canine teacher is back for an alphabetical tour of the community in Miss Bindergarten Takes a Field Trip with Kindergarten by Joseph Slate, illus. by Ashley Wolff. The class meets the people who keep their neighborhood going and joins the proceedings, as Danny cuts out cookies at the bakery and Miss Bindergarten herself slides down the pole in the firehouse. ( July) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

PreS-Gr 2-Miss Bindergarten takes her class on a field trip to a bakery, the firehouse, the post office, the library, and finishes the day with a picnic in the park. In the previous volumes, readers were introduced to the alphabet, counting, and the days of the week. In this book, in addition to reinforcing the alphabet, youngsters are asked to identify various shapes throughout the story, and a special page at the end allows them to check their work. The format is identical to the earlier titles-one or two lines of rhyming text to a page with large, colorful cartoons featuring animals in human dress. Miss Bindergarten, dressed in her sensible but fashionable green jumper and high-top shoes, is energetic and organized throughout the trip. This series is a marvelous introduction to school for young children, who will identify with the action and the characters, and who can look at the pictures and the story in several ways. Learning has never been more fun.-Marlene Gawron, Orange County Library, Orlando, FL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

"In addition to reinforcing the alphabet, youngsters are asked to identify various shapes throughout the story . . . learning has never been more fun." (School Library Journal)
