Overview: Follow a young girl as she revives her dull field trip to the farm by retelling the day’s events to her mother. Suddenly the boring field trip is full of chaotic and imaginative events. Crying cows, destructive boa constrictors, and food throwing, adds to the silliness of this book. This picture book proves that the ordinary can really become extraordinary.
Activity: Describe something you do in your life that you feel is boring, and paint it with your imagination to make it extraordinary!
