Product Details


★ “Hale’s art presents cityscapes from fluctuating perspectives, populated with a diverse cast of pedestrians, passengers, and classmates. Just right for completists and transit enthusiasts . . . A charming, detailed primer for easing children into new routines and spatial phrases.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

The blend of illustrations and simple text provides a great teaching tool for prepositions, but this book is so much more. Celebrating family, community, and the joys of city life through the eyes of a child, the book succeeds on multiple levels.”School Library Journal, Starred Review

★ “It’s a perfect back-to-school book, a warm-hearted chronicle of a daily routine, and an appealing introduction to directional and positional prepositions.” —The Horn Book, Starred Review

“youngsters will be riveted by the sights and sounds of Hale’s city. Out the Door is a charming read that will prompt readers to reflect on their own daily rituals.”—BookPage

“The collage illustrations vary perspective, sometimes showing the travelers clearly while challenging readers to look for them at other times. Two subway scenes are particular striking, one of the travelers waiting from the opposite platform and the other a cutaway of the train passing below the streets. Kids can use the word patterns of this easy story to discuss their own experiences.”Kirkus Reviews

“Young readers will delight in the textured, colorful images as an unnamed girl ventures out for the day, going from her front door, through the neighborhood, onto the train, to school, and back home again, each step marked by familiar sights for city dwellers, like subway stations, historic architecture, and skyscraper-filled panoramas. . . . Hale’s love for New York and pleasant memories of living there shine through in this playful romp through the city.”—Booklist
