Description

Enthusiastic children around the world are on their way to school. But how do they get there? The answers are as varied as the landscapes, which range from Egypt's sandy desert to Switzerland's snowy peaks. Jaunty rhymes - in Venice, "Bianca, Beppo, Benedetto, ride aboard the vaporetto" - and exuberant watercolors celebrate the individuality of each locale, and there are plenty of humorous details to please eagle-eyed readers as they join their fellow students to travel by ferry, trolley car, helicopter, and more. A world map is included at the end, along with a summary listing where all the children in the story live.



Sure to awaken student curiosity about the world, This Is the Way We Go to School combines themes of transportation, school, culture, and childhood into a not-to-be-missed multicultural extravaganza.

Standards:

RI.K.3. With prompting and support, describe the connection between two individuals, events, ideas, or pieces of information in a text.
