Follow the Line to School

Laura Ljungkvist. Viking, $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-670-01226-8

Fourth in Ljungkvist's Follow the Line series, this outing takes readers on a tour of a school, as a black line forms words and objects in bright scenes with crisp collages and lots of prompts to engage children. The line trails into "the science corner," where readers learn a bit about animals, before heading into a modish library, the art room ("Which pictures on the wall are made from cut paper?"), the cafeteria, and outdoors for recess. Ljungkvist covers all the basic elements of an ordinary school day, and the story's interactive elements highlight the underlying message about the joys of learning. Ages 4%E2%80%93up. (July)
