We have 2 field trips coming up. One is to the Natural History Museum and the other is to The Flower Fields www.theflowerfields.com

Any great ideas of FIAR titles to connect to these trips?

Thank you!

Natural History - many titles including Owl Moon and The Salamander Room. Are there special exhibits you plan to see?

Nedra,

The Flower Fields looks so cool. Never heard of it. Too far for me, but looks so cool. How far is it for you?

For African Mammals, you could tie in Andy and the Lion. When we did that one, we went to the circus. A little less academic, but fun! :D

It does look cool! I have never booked a trip here before. Very excited!

It's about 1 1/2 hrs. from me. We are making a day of it and hitting the beach that afternoon.
