This was a children's book very near to my heart as a child, and is now very difficult to find ANYWHERE.  Someone has nicely published the whole book on their blog, thus allowing today's readers to enjoy it as i did as a child.    It is based upon a real incident that took place in the neighborhood I grew up in.  The book was, of course, very popular in my childhood neighborhood library, located right across the street from Tompkins Square Park, where the book takes place.

Pin where books take us (use World map instead)--Every time a student reads the name of a city, state, or famous landmark in their book, they pinpoint the geographic location on the map with their designated push pin. Great way to integrate reading with social studies.
