Brian Rasoldi and his fourth-grade class think Ms. Reynolds is nuts when she walks in with a pile of newspapers, a green doll, a copy of the Declaration of Independence, a library book, and a fireman's hat. But when they find out they're taking a class trip to Philadelphia, it all starts to make sense.

Join Brian and his friends as they learn about the City of Brotherly Love, from its history and mysteries to its famous residents, including William Penn, Benjamin Franklin, and Will Smith. Philadelphia is also home to the Phillies and the Eagles, and it hosts the Mummers Parade, which entertains fans with their feathers and strings every New Year's Day. Visitors to Philadelphia can still see symbols of the birth of the United States, such as Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. Brian and his classmates have a terrific day of sightseeing and antics, and top it off with a visit to the colorful Italian Market.
