This Is the Way We Go to School

This Is the Way We Go to School, A Book About Children Around the World by Edith Baker has been a favorite of mine to use with every age group I've worked with.  This book is a great springboard for children to think about and investigate this question, How did we get to school today?  I love this book because it helps children think globally beyond their own daily life.  When reading this book we learn some children travel by ferry, cable cars, horse and buggy, skis, Skidoo and more.  I've signed up to participate in K Around the World via twitter and am wondering how our partner class gets to school.  I'll have to remember to revisit this book as we learn from each other.
