Description

Readers will celebrate diversity as they travel around the world to learn what it means to be a good neighbor in communities across the globe. Around the world, children live in communities with others, sharing homes, resources, and experiences with their neighbors. Through vibrant photographs and simple text, readers will see neighborhoods from Vietnam to the United States, Austria to Kenya and everywhere in between and learn what it means to be part of a community. With contributions from Fred Rogers, this celebration of culture, tradition, and friendship will have readers asking “won’t you be my neighbor?”
