The city is alive with vibrant art in every corner of the parks, the shops, the trains. But most people are too busy to see it—or worse, choose to ignore it! When three children stop to marvel at the art around their community, they realize it’s up to them to show everyone else how truly special it is when art and reality dance together so seamlessly.
Boogie boogie, y’all.
The city boogied all day.
Busy, busy, busy,
Till one kid stopped to say,
Woah, woah, woah!
Look at the art on the wall!---from the publisher
