Adventures to School
Real-life Journeys of Students From Around the WorldBook - 2018 | First edition.
Children all around the world go to school. Whether they're from Japan, Ukraine, Ethiopia, or the United States, all students have the desire to learn about the world and shape the future. In Bhutan, children walk for three hours to make it to school, and in Pakistan, children travel by rickshaw. Some children in China must climb a heaven ladder, while children in Nepal must walk over a wire bridge. The treks of these students are unique, extraordinary, and even dangerous, and they signify the common determination, perseverance, and sense of adventure shared by young people around the world.
Read along as students from thirteen different nations embark on their journeys to get to school in the morning, and learn about the diverse landscapes and cultures of these countries along the way!

An awesome non-fiction picture book that illustrates the various means of transportation children across the globe endure in order to make their way to school. A great read aloud for September, or as an introduction to graphing and/or world communities.
