Running the Road to ABC by Denize Lauture illustrated by Reynold Ruffins

*Winner of the Coretta Scott King Award (1997)
This book depicts six Haitian children running the long road to school.
With repetitive text, the author instills in the reader the length of the journey to school and their eagerness to learn.
A good book to expose children to a different culture and another country.
Strategies: inferring, compare/contrast (their school and how they get to school to the Haitian children's method/school building)
-Borrowed from the library.
