The book even includes a glossary that explains the musical and cultural references that may not be familiar to the children (or their parents)..
Stella Mae looked around Linden Square with her binoculars. Next door, across the street, upstairs, and downstairs people went about their business. Downstairs “a guy with a pencil mustache practiced the slide trombone.” Fum, fum, fum! Across the street a couple of kids were having a pillow fight and that was a little tiny bit more interesting. That night the snow began to swish and swirl around the building. “It snowed all night, all the next day, and into the next night.” The next day Stella Mae ran out to greet the snow and began to make a snow sculpture. Linden Square, the boring, nothing but boring, neighborhood suddenly sprang to life. What could possibly happen to make that boring neighborhood seem exciting?
This is the tale of Stella Mae Culpepper who discovered that Linden Square really was a fun place to live. Naturally, Stella Mae, like many children, are very curious and know everything there is to know about their neighborhoods, but don’t actually know some of the people.Read more ›
This well-written, lively illustrated book not only increases a child's vocabulary but shows them what can happen when a community comes together. In the back you will find a wonderfully detailed glossary clearly explaining some of what was written about in the main text: karaoke, arpeggio, Moonlight Sonata, pianissimo, Ferdinand the Bull, Babar, Ganesh etc. Got you curious?
