Do you have a reluctant young reader in your family? At my local library, this book cover caught my eye. I picked it up and read it, and thoroughly enjoyed it!
It’s about a 5th grade class that’s in New York City on a field trip, and two of the kids get separated from the rest of the group. It’s a scenario that could happen to young people or adults. But instead of panicking, the kids stay calm and manage to get back to the rest of their class.
What I loved about this book was the way they explained the history of the New York City subway system. There’s also a wonderfully drawn map of the subway lines inside the front cover. It made me want to experience the subways of New York – minus the part about getting lost. Check out this graphic novel for a great short read!
