The Carnival Committee

by Susan Blackaby

The kids of Hill Street School are getting ready for their spring carnival, and the third-grade class is in charge of making fliers and maps. Everything goes smoothly, until a big mistake on the flier (and some unexpected pets!) threatens to spoil the day.

Children's Literature Comprehensive Database - Katie DeWald

"Mrs. Parker’s third grade class is busy making a map and flyer in preparation for their spring carnival. As the students are busy deciding where the skateboard ramp, games, food, and first-aid stations should be located, they learn about the parts of a map. The class gets a proofreading lesson and a big surprise when kids bring their pets to the carnival due to a mistake made in the carnival flyer. The class rebounds from the blunder by hosting a boisterous and entertaining pet parade. Mrs. Parker’s students learn about the compass, key, title, symbols, and cardinal directions. Each of the terms readers encounter is included in a glossary at the end of the book. The fun, cartoonish illustrations give the characters personality and help readers to understand the content. Blackaby also includes an activity for making a school map and a section of library and web resources about maps. This green level book from the “Read-it! Readers: Social Studies” series would be an excellent supplement to an elementary unit about map skills." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database

Susan Blackaby started writing in Mrs. Nichols' third grade class at Green Gables. She didn't think of becoming a writer until she had tried a few other things, including goat milking and weaving. Over the past 20 years, Susan has written textbooks, workbooks, and readers by the dozen for kids in elementary school. In 2002, her first trade book, Rembrandt's Hat, was named one of the top ten picture books of the year by the Washington Post. Susan lives in Portland, Oregon, with two people, two labs, and the nicest kitty in the world.
