Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3 - This beautifully crafted book explores the concept of community, using well-chosen words from the late Mr. Rogers as a starting point: "Neighbors are people who care about and help each other. Sometimes they live in the same real neighborhood. But they can also be 'neighbors' even if they live far away." Illustrated with bright, beautiful full-color photos of children around the world, the gorgeous spreads are organized by themes, including homes, schools, places of worship, recreational areas, transportation, celebrations, and sharing responsibilities to improve your neighborhood and the lives of those who live there. With photos depicting everything from an open-air Mexican market to a Guatemalan village to a Hanukkah celebration in the U.S., this book celebrates diversity, all the while emphasizing our overarching similarities. An appended map highlights the countries where the photos were taken. The brief text and stunning illustrations make this an ideal book for sharing. Mr. Rogers would be proud. - Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 2. Beginning with introductory "Words of Wisdom from Fred Rogers," this horizontally formatted book explores the concept of neighborhood though a dual text and dozens of excellent photographs. The large-print text, suitable for young preschool children, uses short phrases to reinforce the idea of what a neighborhood is. For instance, the sentence "Neighborhoods also have schools" appears on one spread, while the next three spreads note that there are also "places to worship," "places to play," "and places to buy the things you need." A paragraph of text enlarges on the spread's theme, illustrated by several colorful photos, identified simply by the name of one of the 37 countries represented. Elementary and preschool teachers will find this a rich source of pictures showing the functions of a community and the variety of neighborhoods throughout the world. Carolyn Phelan

I don't know what it is exactly, but my daughter LOVES this book. We read it over and over again every single day- and she's only 14 months old! We don't read all of the text because she is too young to sit still for that, but I read the captions on each page (which still flows like a story), and we talk about the pictures. I'm currently ordering a second copy (she hasn't learned yet to be careful with paper pages and has ripped most of them), and I'm ordering a few other books by the same author.

This book is not typical of so many kids books on the market today. It relates information about other cultures, friendship, and learning in a way that does not speak down to children. Rather, this book shows how people around the world live, and illustrated that the values and ideas that make good neighbors and friends are universal. In addition to informative (and yet very kid-friendly) text, Be My Neighbor is packed with photos that will intricgue children of many ages. I purchased this book for our three-year old, and though it is intended for slighly older children, he was drawn in immediately by the photos and the discussion about what makes friends and neighbors special. I recommend this book highly and am very pleased to have found it.

Great book! The pictures are great and the message is as well. Great for kids learning about their community. The reading isn't very easy, so it is a book to read to kids.
