Welcome to Children'sPlayground. Today, we have our first children's book review. Because I recently reviewed the book, Signs of Trouble
by Janet A Collins, and I thoroughly enjoyed it, I wanted to share the
reveiw here. If you have a published children's book you'd like me to
review, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you more information.

Children with learning
disabilities get separated from their Special Education class on a field
trip and use what they’ve learned to get reunited with them. The
included activities can help children learn safety rules, understanding
of people with special needs, basic reading skills, and creative writing
Signs of Trouble is an adventurous story
about two girls, a special ed student and her partner, who get
separated from their group. With a communication mix-up and a trip to
the bathroom, the girls discover they are...gulp...lost!
During this edge-of
-the-seat story, we follow the characters as they face a real life test
on what to do if you are lost. Do they go with that strange lady who
offered to help them find their group? Do they go looking for their
group? Should they try to find the group meeting place on their own?
With some quick thinking
and a creative solution, the girls find a way to draw attention to
themselves and get the help they needed.
This is a delightfully
written story that all children can relate to. I loved at the end of the
book there are a large variety of academic activities. More fascinating
fun with author Janet A Collins!
