Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Five children exit their brownstone buildings to explore the neighborhood in an uplifting alphabet book. From sidewalk to playground, the children take on different roles based upon the play activity of the moment: “P is for Piggyback riders. Q is for Question askers.” Muted colors, strong ink lines, and chalky backgrounds create a feeling of serenity and open space, despite the city environment, while the children’s expressive features and bright clothing highlight their creativity, movement, and joy. An ideal read for a sweet summer afternoon—directly followed by outdoor play. Ages 3–up. (June)
School Library Journal
PreS-K—This cheerful alphabet book has lively illustrations and kid-focused entries like "giggle givers" and "ice cream lickers." Kids of multiple ethnicities romp together in a neighborhood park, providing a nice sense of community. They play on monkey bars, in a fountain and a sandbox, etc., and in the final layout, they've collapsed together on a couch for a nap. The endpapers are an entertaining bonus, providing a map of the residential block and park where the different letters are represented. Children will enjoy tracing their fingers over the dotted route and recalling the action matched with each letter. The book is printed on earthy brown paper, and the artwork is rendered in a mix of thick black lines and rich colors in ink and pastels. A fun, educational, and socially thoughtful purchase.—Alyson Low, Fayetteville Public Library, AR
