Welcome to My Neighborhood! A Barrio ABC

Welcome to My Neighborhood! A Barrio ABC

The concept of what a neighborhood is to young children is often abstract. The alphabet book Welcome to my Neighborhood! puts us in the setting of a Barrio. Author Quiara Alegria Hudes walks us through different places and faces of a city neighborhood making references to Spanish culture. This is a good book to introduce the idea of what a neighborhood is like. The illustrations enhance the many examples of the goings on in a typical city neighborhood. Educators can use the illustrations of this book as a teaching tool for comparing and contrasting other neighborhoods in different countries and /or cultures.
