"Our street is us and we are it.
Our street is where we like to be, and it looks like all our dreams."
When I was just a wee lass this was my favorite book. It is the first book that I remember reading over and over again after I first learned how to sound out words.
The story is all about being an individual in a world full of sameness and how diversity is OK.
I just ordered a copy of the book for a friend's little girl who is getting to be the age where I think she will appreciate it. (You can get it on Amazon for next to nothing)
I guess what I am trying to say is; if you have a child in your life that is just learning to read, or that enjoys books with big bright pictures, this is a great one! I highly recommend it.
Just looking at the cover makes me get a little misty. Where does the time go?
