Field Trip: Volume One

From crazy moments of serendipity to tales of perseverance against all odds, Field Trip is a collection of lively and in-depth interviews with some of the world’s most successful and innovative people. Journey into the lives and careers of twelve unique mentors as they talk about their work, choices they’ve made along the way, and the love that drives them to keep pushing to the next level.

For young people just starting out and for those who are well into their careers but rethinking their path, Field Trip offers a rare chance to peek into the journeys others have taken and gain insight about what it takes to create a work life that is deeply satisfying and built for the long haul.

Featured in Field Trip: Volume One are: fashion designer Elizabeth Kiester; children’s rights leader Craig Kielburger; hotelier Liz Lambert; online antiques dealer Arthur Rooks; Dan Storper, founder of Putumayo World Music; real estate investor Michael Koh; chef and school lunch reformer Ann Cooper; architect and design theorist Azby Brown; writer and illustrator Maira Kalman; Joe Whinney, founder of Theo Chocolate; innovative retailer Nina Garduno; and Erik Weihenmayer, the first blind person to summit Mt. Everest.

A love of language, a passion for simple pleasures, and a story of individuality and acceptance come to life in this charming and artful children’s book. Birds Like You explores the things and activities that different birds like and concludes with an expression of kinship and acceptance. The lively writing, with its engaging cadence and rhyming, is matched by bold and vibrant illustrations inspired by great jazz album cover art from the 1940s and 1950s.
