Neighbors gather on a hot summer day for a joyful block party: Kids play double Dutch; men debate at the barber shop and play chess; mothers and aunts cook up oxtail stew, collard greens, and other delicious treats; and friends dance and sway as jazz floats through the streets. A rhythmic tale that celebrates the diversity of a close-knit community, Around Our Way on Neighbors Day will excite readers and prompt them to discover the magic of their own special surroundings.
