_ã–Verde_ã_s unique style and simple yet increasingly important messages of peace, mindfulness, and community make her stories a must-share...A must-purchase._ã _ã”School Library Journal(starred review)
_ã–Walls do not just create barriers and divide spaces. They can be canvases for artmaking; opportunities to shape a community._ã _ã”The Horn Book
_ã–This story of urban renewal sends a welcome double message by Verde: neighbors and neighborhoods are more than the way they look, and ordinary people can band together to transform big things._ã _ã”Publishers Weekly
A boy takes on a community art project in order to make his neighborhood more beautiful in this empowering and inspiring picture book by Susan Verde, stunningly illustrated by award-winning artist John Parra.
One creative boy.
One bare, abandoned wall.
One BIG idea.
There is a wall in êngel_ã_s neighborhood. Around it, the community bustles with life: music, dancing, laughing. Not the wall. It is bleak. One boy decides to change that. But he can_ã_t do it alone.
Told in elegant verse by Susan Verde and vibrantly illustrated by John Parra, this inspiring picture book celebrates the power of art to tell a story and bring a community together.
