In Lucia's Neighborhood

In Lucia’s Neighborhood Pat Shewchuk

When Lucia learns about Jane Jacobs she decides to take a closer look at her neighborhood. Jane Jacobs was a journalist, author, and activist best known for her influence on urban studies. She had an influential book called, The Death and Life of Great American Cities (1961). In Lucia’s Neighborhood, Lucia shows you what it is like in the park, the shops, the people, the Portugal festival…just an average day in her neighborhood.

    This sounds like a really great book. I was scanning through to see which book I wanted to comment on, and the words “Portugal festival” caught my eye. I happen to be Portuguese and have not seen my heritage in a children’s book before, so I wanted to read more about the story. I think kids would love to read about Lucia’s city that she calls home!

    This looks Ike a book that every child should read. It lets kids know that there are many different places to live.
