Discover the true meaning of community in this gorgeous picture book about a very special street bursting with joy, hope, and dreams. An award-winning illustrator and critically acclaimed author pay tribute to the neighborhood where they grew up as cousins- "a place where love abounds" ( The Horn Book , starred review). Welcome to Dream Street-the best street in the world! On Dream Street, love between generations rules, everyone is special, and the warmth of the neighborhood shines.℗℗ Meet kids like Azaria, who loves to jump double-Dutch one leg at a time; Zion, whose dream is to become a librarian; and cousins Ede and Tari, who dream of creating a picture book together one day. Meet grown-ups like Mr. Sidney, a retired mail carrier who greets everyone with the words, "Don't wait to have a great day. Create one!" and Ms. Sarah, whose voice is only a whisper but who has stories between the lines of her face that she'll share when you come close.℗ A magical story from the critically acclaimed author of Nana Akua Goes to School and a Caldecott Honor and Coretta Scott King Award winning illustrator. Illuminating this vivid cast of characters are vibrant, joyful illustrations that make this neighborhood-based on the Roxbury neighborhood in Boston where the author and illustrator grew up together as cousins-truly sing. This book is a perfect way for parents to share with their children the importance of community.
