Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
Eloise Greenfield celebrates life in a black neighborhood in Night on Neighborhood Street. The Robinsons gather "...Just before bed / The kids in pajamas / The homework's been read / It's time for the family to have some fun / 'It's fambly time!' / Says the littlest one...." Tonya's mother entertains her daughter's friends when they spend the night by playing her horn "...and lets them sing / (Do they make that music swing!)" There are also poems of fear and danger in this unvarnished glimpse of city life, where children "...reach for warmth and life" especially when "the seller" comes around. Jan Spivey Gilchrist's vivid portraits of individuals loving, caring, worrying, and dreaming, make this a unique blend of poetry and art.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-- Warm shades of blues, greens, and lavenders as well as the characters' gently, glowing shades of browns perfectly capture Night on Neighborhood Street . Each of Greenfield's poems deals with everyday concerns and delights of African-American city children: a lonely boy gazes at the moon, waiting for his ``best, best friend'' to come home; a newborn baby swaddled in pink cries because she's ``too tiny a girl/ for this big new world.'' Nerissa tries to cheer her unemployed father and ill mother ``by telling them the best old/ bedtime jokes.'' The most powerful poem is ``The Seller,'' who ``comes around/ carrying in his many pockets/packages of death.'' The final poem depicts a young mother playing a trumpet on a porch late at night. She ``blows lullaby sounds/ into the silence/ the children hear and smile/ their sleep deepens/ and they are at peace/ with the night.'' A warm, triumphant book that will be wonderful to share with a group or in a more cozy situation. --Eve Larkin, Chicago Public Library
