Running the Road to ABCby Denize Lauture, Reynold Ruffins (Illustrator)
Every morning the children wake before dawn, eager to get to school on time. Barefoot they go, their feet remembering the way over the meadows and hills of Haiti, their home. Their journey is accompanied by nature's music, and all around them the deep blue twilight sky is brightening to a sun-swept morning. This story captures the simple joys of starting one's day. Full color.

This book captivated my 3 and 5 year old granddaughters as I told them the story of children in Haiti. I had tried to explain Haiti to them the week before, but needed pictures to help, so I went to the local library and checked out this book. They liked it so much and understood Haiti so much better that I ordered the book from B&N. Pictures are very real (my sister goes on Mission Trips there every year) and story is very true and easy to understand.
