“Blue sky, no clouds,
Summer heat, side street,
Whirling, whizzing feet.
Everyone is out to play
Today, around our way…”
Neighbors gather on a hot summer day for a joyful block party—kids play double Dutch; men debate at the barbershop 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 air.
A rhythmic tale that celebrates the diversity of a close knit community, Around Our Way on Neighbors’ Day will fill young readers with excitement to discover the spirit of their own special surroundings.
