Edith Baer has written this brilliant book about how children get to their schools all around the world. It includes USA, Russia, India, Egypt and lots of other countries but not the UK! The pictures are very bright and very colourful; the sentences quite short and easy to read; they are easy to understand on top of all that. Conclusion: it is a great book which is informative and useful. The rhyming is good. Criticism: The writing should have been a bit bigger so it would have been good for young children as well as children around my age (9 - 12). Also, some of the names are hard to read. Rating: I would rate it 7/ 10.
