MUSEUM TRIP is, on the surface, a straightforward story of a boy who gets lost (literally) in an exhibition of mazes at the museum. But parents can encourage a more complex "reading" from their kids by looking more closely at the bold, clean illustrations. The pictures are simple and inviting; dark outlines give the book the look of a coloring book filled in. The boy's red jacket makes his figure pop even on the drabber maze pages. The careful illustration of actual works of art invites families to identify the pieces. Kids might enjoy learning the names of the paintings and sculptures. And everyone will enjoy solving the series of mazes, which are simple enough that even younger kids will be able to trace through to the end.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
