Welcome to My Neighborhood: A Barrio ABC

By Quiara Alegria Hudes   Illustrated by Shino Arihara   

Scholastic Inc | ISBN 9780545094245 Hardcover
32 Pages | 10.32" x 8.29" | Ages 3 to 7

M is for las muralistas, making murals of island vistas.
Waterfalls that hide brick walls.
Rain forests full of tropical trees.
N is for the noisy neighbors who sit on the stoop and catch the breeze.

When Ava's friend Chien visits her in the barrio, she takes him on a tour of all her favorite things about the neighborhood. From fire hydrants to ice-cream trucks, bodegas to trolley tracks, the sights and sounds of the barrio—even the less perfect things—come to life through the words of award-winning playwright Quiara Alegría Hudes.

A perfect way to get kids exploring and talking about what makes their own neighborhoods special!
