School trips allow children to get out of their routine and into contact with new ideas. These activities develop curiosity and the desire to do new things. The best part is that, at the same time, children can learn and have fun. Jennifer Morhaime demonstrates this in Effie Goes on a Field Trip. The story starts a few days before the trip since Effie asks for permission at home. Then she organizes with her friend Billie to create a plan to show her friend Jessie how much fun the science museum they will be visiting can be. Effie and Billie make a map to go to the most interesting sections. Other classmates join them during part of the trip, making this a great experience.
Effie Goes on a Field Trip teaches many ideas in a short story. It shows readers that they can share with others beyond their usual circle, which will help develop social skills. The narration is simple, and children can identify with the situations. The characters are friendly and think of the good of others. Not only because of the map Effie makes but before the trip, she also thinks about bringing snacks in case someone doesn't have lunch. With examples like this, readers will feel more encouraged to collaborate with their classmates. The images are adorable and show that sharing is fun. Through her words, Jennifer Morhaime shows a scenario of friendship, respect, and commitment. Effie Goes on a Field Trip will motivate children to improve their relationships with classmates and teachers.
