Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leila Toledo
Every city child who has played on his or her front steps with friends can relate to this story. In this story, readers enter one young girl's world where she shares the precious happenings that enriche her life and the lives of her two friends. Each season brings a different experience from sucking popsicles in the summer to sweeping the leaves in the fall.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1A gentle story about a child's imaginative play. The front steps of a city building make a wonderful year-round playground for an African-American girl and her friends. The steps are good for hopping up and down, watching people and traffic pass by, coloring with friends, playing school, or pretending to be in a cave with a blanket draped over the stoop. Best of all, setting foot on the front steps after you've been away means you're home again. Bright cut-paper collages with watercolors show cars (that look like miniatures) and animals somewhat distorted in relation to people, but have a fresh, childlike quality. An additional slice-of-urban-life picture book.Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
