Running The Road To ABC

Illustrated by Reynold Ruffins

Six island children are running at daybreak -- over the hills, through the fields, across the city square -- to school! Never before has the love of learning (and learning together) been such a joyous time. Denise Lauture's buoyant, poetic text captures the happiness and youth of energetic children on the way to school; Reynold Ruffins perfectly illustrates the rich beauty of Haiti with the bright-colored vibrance of Haitian folk art. A great read-aloud book for the classroom.
