Travel Bucket Lists – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
This series includes titles that prepare readers for experiences from visiting historical sites to sports venues. Starting with a table of contents that shows four-to-five chapters in varying lengths, each title opens from a visitor’s perspective and is written in third person, setting the scene for readers. Longer paragraphs are accompanied by color photos or graphics to give more context, balancing the amount of information provided throughout. Using informative side panels outside of the main text, dedicated pages to primary resources, and questions throughout, the presentation encourages readers to think critically about what they have read. For example, in Sports Venue Bucket List, the third chapter details the importance of college sports in the United States, listing the largest stadiums in the world, eight out of 11 of which are U.S. college stadiums. At the end of each title, a map is shown with pinned locations that can be connected to the text along with a “Stop and Think” section good for short answer written exercises or for class discussion. The back matter includes a glossary, more reading found online or in books, and an index. VERDICT Expands understanding and cultural importance of popular excursions and experiences; this series is good for older elementary/younger middle grade readers.
