Girl on the Road
Elizabeth Mary Cummings/Johanna Roberts
A nonfiction narrative about what it takes to be a traffic controller as seen through the eyes of a young girl. From stopping traffic to let emergency vehicles pass to guiding heavy loads onto lorries, the role of a traffic controller is demonstrated as being both diverse and important.
Girl on the Road, along with the other Verityville books, provide scope for terrific discussion points amongst readers and their caregivers, as well as the ability for valuable language experiences when out and about themselves. The pictures in this title showcase realistic objects and scenes, such as different kinds of vehicles, road signs, traffic cones (or witches’ hats), construction site materials and even appropriate uniforms / safety gear for workers. The book is also complete with a handy glossary of all the opposites and traffic terms.
