Description of this Book

Kids around the world get to school in unique ways. Take a peek inside this book and see how they reach their destinations! 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!

Author's Bio

Baptiste Paul grew up in St. Lucia, where he walked up mountain roads barefoot or wearing cracked rubber shoes that burned his feet. His steps eventually led him to earn degrees in environmental and political science from Bucknell University in Pennsylvania. He now lives in Wisconsin, and this is his second book for children. His debut, The Field, was published by NorthSouth books. Visit him online at baptistepaul.com. Miranda Paul is the award-winning children's author of The Great Pasta Escape, One Plastic Bag, Water Is Water, Trainbots, and Blobfish Throws a Party. Her books range from serious nonfiction to humorous picture books and have garnered starred reviews or placement on state reading lists. During her early school days, she rode a big yellow bus about an hour each way. Her grown-up school adventures have included teaching jobs in Maryland, Pennsylvania, the Gambia, and Wisconsin. Discover how to invite her to your school at mirandapaul.com. Isabel Mu oz was born and raised in a small town in Spain. As a child, she loved to draw and paint, and she went on to study fine arts and become an illustrator. Isabel loves to look at children's books and search the colorful illustrations to find the tiniest details. She's constantly looking for fresh ideas to draw, so you'll probably find her sketching something new while she's enjoying a cup of tea.
