The Way to School (Rosemary McCarney with Plan International. Second Story Press, 2015)
This is a highly visual book filled with awe-inspiring photographs of how children around the globe get to school. Although it contains limited text, read it when there is sufficient time to mull over the pictures. There is so much to look at from the geography, the children’s faces, clothing, what they are carrying, and, in some instances, the animal friends that help transport them to school. The Way to School will spark conversation and questions in children between 3 and 10 years of age. It could sit on a coffee table as easily as on a child’s bookshelf or in a classroom. Second Story Press has published a number of other books authored by Rosemary McCarney with Plan International; Because I am a Girl and Every Day is Malala Day would also appeal to middle grade audiences.
