Walking to School

Walking to School Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Walking to school can be hard if you live in Belfast, Northern Ireland. It's downright dangerous if you're a Catholic, like Allison, and the shortest route to your school goes through a Protestant neighborhood. But sometimes a ray of kindness cuts through the violence. That's what happens when a demonstrator rips a brass button off Allison's new school blazer, and a Protestant girl not only retrieves the button but returns it to Allison.

Once again, as in FLY AWAY HOME and the caldecott-winning SMOKY NIGHT, Eve Bunting finds a way to explore a complicated contemporary situation in terms that any young reader can immediately grasp.

Synopsis:

Inspired by a real incident that occurred in Belfast, Northern Ireland, award-winning author Bunting tells a moving story about religious conflict and of one girl's hope for peace between Protestants and Catholics. Full color.
