From School Library Journal: Gr 3-5-The joys of living in a city from a child's point of view are jubilantly expressed in this very readable collection. The opening poem, "On the Corner," captures the activity of the people in the neighborhood-the shoeshine man who "pops a cloth," "little girls jump double Dutch," "Brothers with time on their hands/croon in three-part harmony," boys shoot hoops. It also suggests the caring bond that these neighbors share as "a lady/toting a shopping bag tells me,/`Be careful crossing the street, honey.'" Weatherford's words paint vibrant pictures of thriving businesses: Moe's restaurant, where the food is "Crispy, crunchy, golden brown"; Lou's Barbershop, where "I feel as if I'm a prince on a throne"; and the lively city market where the scent of cookies calls "in a language known to every child/above the buzz of crowded aisles." There are also poems about friendship and family that children, no matter where they live, can identify with: an elderly aunt's picture-covered mantel, parents dancing and having fun with their children, and good buddies cooling off in the city pool and sharing ice cream. Every selection is set into one of Tokunbo's remarkable textured watercolor paintings that reflect the diversity and richness of a big-city neighborhood. The animated faces of children fully engaged in the wide variety of activities bring the poetry to life. This partnership of word and illustration works well and belongs in most collections.
