On Our Street
Our First Talk About Poverty

AWARD - Bolen Books Children’s Book Prize 2018 Finalist - CCBC Best Books for Kids and Teens, Starred Selection 2018 - CCBC Favourite Books of the Year 2018 - Notable Social Studies Trade Books for Young People 2019

This timely book is a brief invitation to children to wonder and to ask questions…The layout of On Our Street is inviting: double spreads for each question, with large clear font and generous space allocated to photos and drawings…This book will be a terrific catalyst for parents and teachers to open kids’ eyes to the realities of their day-to-day world and to encourage them to share personal experiences…It may never be too soon to begin to learn about these complex issues. And whenever they are ready, On Our Street, part of ‘The World Around Us’ series, will be a fine first step toward enhancing that understanding. Highly Recommended.
