Celebrate all the people, places, and things that make our neighborhoods special with this irresistible picture book by beloved author-illustrator Ruth Chan!

Join our narrator and her dog on their daily walk as they greet the people in their neighborhood—from the mail carrier and bus driver to the sanitation workers and grocery clerks and more. Whether listening, asking, helping, or just saying hello and thank you—it is our patience and kindness that make a neighborhood feel like home. This charming story gently reminds us to slow down and be grateful for all the people, places, and things around us.

Ruth Chan's signature illustrations are hilarious and heartfelt and perfectly complement the lively text. The book also includes an author's note where Ruth talks about how her own Brooklyn community inspired her to create this special book.
