Description

Carmelita loves to greet everyone in her colorful neighborhood. There are people from so many different cultures! They all like to say hello too, so now Carmelita can say hello in Spanish, English, French, Japanese, and many other languages. And her dog, Manny?well, he seems to understand everyone, and gives a happy ?Woof!? wherever he goes.

Caldecott Honor winner Rachel Isadora?s eyecatching collages are full of kid-friendly details like colorful storefronts, pigeons and an ice cream truck, making Carmelita?s neighborhood fun to explore. Emphasizing the rich diversity of America?s neighborhoods, this simple portrait of a child?s day provides a great introduction to the joy of language.
