I enjoyed reading this book. I enjoyed the diversity of the children in this book. The chidlren are all from different backgrounds.This book is the story of four kids who meet each other over the summer time. One of the kids is a native to the hometown. He thinks that his summer will not be good because he was lonely. One of the children came to live with a foster parent. Another child came to visit their grandma. Another one had just moved in. This book shows how different children can be. I think this book showcases good friendship and shows that things can get better even if you think they wont. ( )

This books is an imaginative collection of call and response style poems that follow four children in the same neighborhood that find different ways to spend time and deal with the challenges of life. The bond that they form is incredible relatable to children of all ages, and the poetry is a unique expression of their cultures and experiences. This book allows children to develop socially because it promotes understanding people from a different viewpoint. This book is good for ages 6-9.
Found in the Pierce County Library. ( )

This is a very imaginative collection of call and response style poems that follow four children in the same neighborhood that find different ways to spend time and deal with the challenges of life. The bond that they form is very surprisingly real and the poetry is a unique expression of their culture and experience.
