Synopsis from Charlesbridge:
A fantastical journey introduces young readers to subway travel. Five children pay the fare, pass through the gates, and zip through the tunnels of subway stations in ten cities around the globe. The trip around the world underscores how travel and cultural connections create community. Back matter includes information about the ten stations mentioned: Atlanta, Cairo, Chicago, London, Mexico City, Moscow, New York City, Stockholm, Tokyo, and Washington, D.C.
Subways are a great way to get around big cities without the hassle of driving and parking. Whether you live in a city that has a subway or are visiting one for vacation, subways can be a new and exciting experience for kids. Subway Ride is a great way to prepare kids for their adventure.
We have a subway in our city and my kids are veteran riders but it’s always good to go over what to expect. The story follows five kids as they take a subway ride, sharing the experience in a fun rhyme and colourful illustrations.
For added learning, the back of the book has some brief information on the 10 subway systems talked about in the book.
