This book is about a class that went on a field trip to the farm. Jimmy brought his boa along and he escaped and everything then went downhill from there. This is a really cool picture book that is appropriate for K-3rd grade. Children can read along or have the book read to them. ( )

28 months - O really likes this story. It's very much over the top for crazy story. I on the other hand thought it was just ok and I'm not a huge fan of the illustration style. ( )

I really liked this book a lot. It was really funny and enjoyable to read. One thing I like about it was definitely the plot of the story. It was this girl telling her mom how her field trip at the farm went. The story was a long elaborate story with some crazy scenarios happening. For example, a cow started crying because it got hit with a haystack and the pigs ate all of the kid’s lunches. This would be fun for children to read. I also enjoyed the illustrations. They were really elaborate but they used bright colors and were also kind of funny. The overall theme of this book is using your imagination and friendship. ( )

This book is cute and kids will surely get a kick out of it. It's a story about a girl who comes home from her class field trip to the farm and her mom is asking her questions about how it went. In true child fashion she answers with one sentences answers that lead to more questions. The story is told slightly backwards as it tends to happen in real life with kids before stringing the events together.

It is cute and the illustrations are very well done. The book can be used in multiple ways with kids; such as cause and effect, story telling, how to tell stories in unique ways, or talking about pets. However, it is a great book for pleasure as well.

The book is good for beginning readers or kids of any age who enjoy a fairly quick read, colorful illustrations, and boa constrictors that eat the wash! ( )

This book is about a girl telling her mother about her class field trip to the farm. I would use this book because it is humorous and short and can be related to the children easily. I would use this book for kids ages k-3.
