Along A Long Road

Follow Frank Viva’s biker along a long yellow road as he cycles through the city, past the shoreline, over a bridge and by the fairgrounds. The sights are varied and the yellow road is fun to trace with a finger. The book has a map-like quality, especially the one long continuous road shown in the endpapers. A comprehensive teacher’s guide includes ideas on prepositions, map making and safety.
