About the Author:

Steve Bjorkman is the celebrated illustrator of numerous books for children, including Jeff Foxworthy's New York Times bestsellering picture books DIRT ON MY SHIRT and SILLY STREET, as well as EMIILY'S EVERYDAY MANNERS by Cindy Post Senning and Peggy Post, and Jay McGraw's LIFE STRATEGIES FOR DEALING WITH BULLIES. He lives with his wife in California. SPLIT! SPLAT! is his first book with Scholastic Press.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1 --With the opening couplet, "One by one or two by two--/ come along, it's fun to do!," children are treated to a lively, lyrical peek into the world beyond Hometown, U. S. A. Each page (or, predominantly, double-page) shows and tells how children from very different cultures travel to school. The scope is broad, ranging from the desert sands of Egypt to Switzerland's snowy peaks. The exuberant watercolor washes (reminiscent of James Stevenson's style) complement each page's rhyming text, overflow with joy and motion, and add a visual zest that keeps the pages turning. The final bonus is two-fold. One single page lists the children's names from the story and tells where they live, e.g., "Niels and Solveig live in Norway." Following this is a world map with the children's countries shown. What fun to share the enthusiasm and questioning this book (a first for this age group) will generate. This book deserves a prominent place at home, at schools, and in the library because the total result is an ultimate example of excellence in education. --Mary Lou Budd, Milford South Elementary School, OH
