What’s your favorite book or song or other creation that celebrates neighborhood life? Hard to beat Sesame Street of yore.
Burlington’s Fletcher Free Library just got The Big Orange Splot, a children’s book by Daniel Manus Pinkwater (1977, Scholastic Inc.). Gotta love a good kid book about neighbors, difference, and taking initiative. Groovy illustrations too. My ten-year-old loved it… we’ll see what his siblings think of it next.
