Around Our Way on Neighbors’ Day 

Tameka Book 02By Tameka Fryer Brown. Illustrated by Charlotte Riley-Webb.

Published by Abrams in 2010.

Tameka Fryer Brown was one of my fellow-Mudskippers. We were jubilant to celebrate her first published picture book with her, Around Our Way on Neighbors’ Day.

I love the happy rhythm of the poetry in this book, and that the illustrations complement it beautifully with bright colors, bold strokes and lots of movement.

Around Our Way on Neighbors’ Day celebrates family and friendship in a noisy, busy urban neighborhood. The neighbors share games, music, friendly debates in the barber shop and a variety of ethnic dishes on Neighbor’s Day. It’s a bouncy, upbeat book that kindergartners and first graders love.

Thanks, Tameka!IMG_1401

I'm old enough that I've enjoyed several phases in my life - daughter, wife, mom, grandma, student, teacher, administrator, writer, friend and encourager. I pray they all show Jesus to those around me.
