that neighbor kid

So lovely and sincere, this almost wordless picture book from Daniel Miyares is about neighbors becoming friends and creative endeavors that arise in a free and unfettered childhood.  Warm colors begin to brighten the mostly gray palette throughout the book as the two neighbors’ acquaintance evolves into a rich friendship.  A perfect book to usher in the coming summer.

That Neighborhood Kid was written and illustrated by Daniel Miyares and published by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers.
