Synopsis

The Way to School by Rosemary McCarney

Minimal text and stunning photographs from around the world describe the remarkable, and often dangerous, journeys children make every day on their way to and from school. No simple school bus picks them up each day, but rather children travel through disaster zones, cross rapids, climb mountains, and maneuver on ziplines daily to get to the classroom. Some of them even carry their desks!

Reviews

[The Way to School] is both a fascinating look at school around the world and a very subtle message to readers to appreciate what they have. - Kirkus Reviews
