AJ’s Neighborhood

AJ and Mom have just moved to a new town, and they want to visit to the library for the first time. But AJ is worried. How will they find their way? Mom and AJ come up with a plan: make a map! As they walk through town, AJ adds the people and places he encounters onto his map. Along the way, he discovers what makes his new neighborhood special–and how to find his way home. An ordinary neighborhood comes to life and becomes extraordinary when seen through the eyes of a child as captured by Judy Campbell-Smith’s charming text and Amanda Dowell’s delightfully detailed illustrations.
