A diverse group of friends—Black, Latinx, South Asian, white—enjoys a long journey together guided by the use of a map in this early reader. As the summer draws to a close, Pablo’s dad agrees to take him and his friends to Coney Island. A lover of maps, Pablo plots their course through their urban community: First they walk to the bus stop, then take a bus to the subway line, and finally, ride the subway to Coney Island. Once they arrive at their destination, Pablo produces a second map of Coney Island itself so that he and his friends can locate the rides they want to go on. An activity in the back instructs readers in how to design maps of their own neighborhood. (Ages 5–7)
