Kindergarten-Grade 2-- Picture book audiences can accompany Mrs. Jefferson's class on a mild-mannered romp through a natural history museum. All the events in this soup to nuts story of a day in the city ring true, from the tardy class member who keeps everyone waiting to the queasy kid sitting alone on the bus with his trusty plastic bag. Although nothing out of the ordinary happens, this is pleasant fare for the story hour crowd. The pastel watercolors depict a multiethnic group, but the balloon-shaped faces with protruding ears make all the youngsters look alike except for skin color and hairstyles. The bored museum guard and the weary, out-of-patience teacher may seem funny only to adults. However, the carnivorous dinosaur skeleton that looks hungry enough to gobble up the class dawdler strikes just the right note. Cohen's Lost in the Museum (Greenwillow, 1979) has more substance and a more compelling plot than this series of casual vignettes. Both could be used with Brown's Visiting the Art Museum (Dutton, 1986) to prepare primary-grade students for a field trip. --Martha Rosen, Edgewood School, Scarsdale, NY
