Picture Book: Museum Trip

Wordless picturebooks are one of my favourite formats, and Museum Trip doesn't disappoint. There's plenty for older preschoolers to talk about in this simply drawn tale of a boy's class visit to the museum. A boy is separated from his group when he stops to tie his shoe, and his solitary wanderings lead him to a secret room filled with mazes! Your child will enjoy tracing the path through the maze almost as much as they'll like the surprising ending.

Talking about the wordless illustrations really supports your child's narrative skills; every page is an opportunity to ask, "what's happening here?" It would be fun to read this book before or after your own family's museum outing!
