Field Trip Day

by Lynn Plourde
Illustrated by Thor Wickstrom
Dutton Children’s Books, 2010

It was Field Trip Day.
Everyone in Mrs. Shepherd’s class was anxious
to visit a farm, especially . . .

Juan Dore-Nomad.

Juan knew that some of his best learning
didn’t always happen at school,
but during adventures out in the real world.

Farmer Fandangle’s Organic Environmentally Friendly Farm is a grand adventure for Mrs. Shepherd’s class. The only problem is the chaperones keep doing headcounts and coming up with the number 22, but there are TWENTY-THREE students in Mrs. Shepherd’s class! Who’s missing? You guessed it–Juan! He just can’t help himself as he wanders off to see what the cows eat so they can give organic milk and to find the source of power for the henhouse contraptions (windmills!). At the end of the farm field trip, it’s not Juan who’s missing, but two of Farmer Fandangle’s calves! Where could they be? Can anyone find them?
