Be My Neighbor
BOOKS THAT CELEBRATE DIVERSITY AND COMMUNITY


Book
By Maya Ajmera and John D. Ivanko

Around the world, children live in neighborhoods—from remote villages in Canada to small towns in France to bustling cities in Japan. Neighbors may have different cultures, customs, ages, ethnicities, or beliefs, but they all share a place where they feel at home. Sometimes neighbors can also be people who live far away. Be My Neighbor celebrates the many different ways children live in a community with others and features words of wisdom from Fred Rogers, a beloved neighbor to children everywhere.

Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People

For ages 4–9



Available in Spanish as Ser Vecinos.

Cover Type: Hardcover Paperback

$16.95
