Book of the week, Along a Long Road
Along a Long Road by Frank Viva is a visually striking book using a limited palette consisting of only 5 colors, one of which is a shiny golden road that flows from page to page, front cover to back cover. The text is a simple rhyming text that follows the route of the bike. Children and parents will enjoy reading this book out loud and any one with a love of cycling and traveling will love this book as they follow this man's journey on his bicycle all over the city, the sea and the countryside.
I love this quote from Publishers Weekly, “It’s the kind of book that creates a mood rather that telling a story, evoking the freedom of traveling, the joy of movement and the exhilaration of being outside.”
