Chris Soentpiet's watercolor illustrations are nothing short of remarkable. They are nearly photographic in their detail and lifelike aspect, and they give a visual rhythm to the text. He is to be commended for his ability to combine both an unflinching look at a downtrodden neighborhood and examples of how we all can find beauty everyday, if we look hard enough.
The message that the book imparted upon us was also a good one. Beauty is sometimes right in front of us, and its important that our children learn that we can make something beautiful by our conduct. The child decided to look outside her door and turn what was once ugly (bottles, litter, vandalism)- clean it up and make it beautiful. She decided to become INVOLVED which is something my daughters school try to the children. This book reinforces that-- which makes it a wonderful choice for our family.
I came to Amazon (my second home) to purchase this book for our home library, and I plan to find more books from this author and build a collection
