Reviewer Comments:

This wonderful collection or parent is a series of virtual field trips, some of which have already been reviewed. Each podcast is narrated by a child aged 7-13 and is informative and engaging. The field trips are varied and range from a visit to St. John’s Cathedral for a Blessing of the Bikes to a visit to someone who keeps homing pigeons to meeting a subway musician. These are well produced, educational and innovative and a way to enlarge the world of students.
