Wonderfully educational for all youngsters, “Let's Go! The Story Of Getting From There To Here” was published in 2007 by Lizann Flatt and Scot Ritchie.

Let's Go!: The Story of Getting from There to Here is a wonderful picture book that sweeps young readers on a canoe, by train, by rocket. Fascinating facts about the history of transportation are paired with an engaging, story-like narration and colourful illustrations.

Let's Go by Lizann Flatt is an excellent introduction to nonfiction suited to the classroom and home libraries. For junior kindergarten and up. Canadian/North American content.

The students may have different stories about how they have flown on an airplane or how they went on a train to go somewhere special. This is a great way to bring in personal experiences and even make ...more
