Quinito’s Neighborhood = El Vecindario de Quinito
Quinito’s neighborhood is made up of more than just buildings, streets, and shops: it is made up of people he knows and loves. Each person has an important job to do, and each knows and values every member of the community. Readers meet them on this delightful neighborhood tour. His cousin Tita, who learns how to make people laugh in clown school. His aunt, who paints murals to brighten up the streets. Rafi, who bakes bread, and Luis Manuel, who sells it. Highlighted by José Ramírez’s energetic, jewel-like illustrations, Quinito’s Neighborhood inspires readers to explore and appreciate their own neighborhoods. K to grade 3. 2005.
