When it comes to transportation,
we are all four-year-olds

How we usually get to work:

Steve takes the E
Barbara takes the 6
Lois takes DeCamp Bus Lines to the Port Authority, then walks or takes the E
Tim takes Metro North (Hudson Line)
Paul takes the E, V, or F
Martha takes the F
Michelle takes the A and E
Sylvie takes a bus to the E or V
Virginia takes Metro North (New Haven Line)

    I am so excited about this book! I took my 3-year-old on the subway when I was in NYC for BEA, and yesterday she turned to me and announced, “The subway that goes to Brooklyn is the cube.” (I believe she meant “Q”.)
