Quinito's family and friends all have important jobs in the neighborhood -- jobs that help make the community a happy place where people know each other and work together. Readers join this lively youngster as he introduces his special folks: a cousin who goes to clown school, a neighbor who sews a wedding dress for a bank teller who will marry the local mailman, and so many more.
Josi Rammrez' jewel colors and sensitive rendering bring this charming journey to life, encouraging children to make similar tours of their own neighborhoods and to recognize that they too are very busy members of a tightly-knit community.
