An ABC introduction to a little girl's neighborhood in all its rich detail.
M is for las muralistas, making murals of island vistas. Waterfalls that hide brick walls. Rainforest full of tropical trees. N is for the noisy neighbors who sit on the stoop and catch the breeze.
When Ava's friend Chien visits her in the Barrio, she takes him on a tour of all of her favorite things about the neighborhood.

A perfect way to get kids exploring and talking about what makes their own neighborhoods special!
