Out the door, down the stoop, past the neighbors, along the block…
Through tree-lined streets, onto a crowded subway car, into the classroom with friends, and finally, retracing her steps back home again. There’s so much to see in Christy Hale’s warm, richly textured collage artwork and simple, evocative text set in a busy Brooklyn cityscape.
Out the Door is the perfect back-to-school book for young kids learning to find their way around a city. Parents and teachers can use this read-aloud to familiarize kids with a host of directional words to describe their first school days.
