Welcome to My Neighborhood! A Barrio ABC Welcome to My Neighborhood! A Barrio ABC

Written by Quiara Alegría Hudes
Illustrated by Shino Arihara

An affectionate tribute to the things that make up home.

M is for los muralistas making murals of island vistas.
Waterfalls that hide brick walls.
Rain forests full of tropical trees.
N is for the noisy neighbors who sit on the stoop and catch the breeze.

When Ava's friend Chien visits her in the barrio, she takes him on a tour of all her favorite things about the neighborhood. From fire hydrants to ice-cream trucks, bodegas to trolley tracks, the sights and sounds of the barrio — even the less perfect things — come to life through the words of award-winning playwright Quiara Alegría Hudes.

A perfect way to get kids exploring and talking about what makes their own neighborhoods special!

Also available en español.


“In the first children's book from Hudes (who wrote the book for the musical In the Heights), an expressive girl takes a friend on a poetic tour of her inner-city neighborhood. ‘E is for the echo of the elevated train. / F is for the fire hydrant spraying summer rain.’ Chalky gouache washes capture both the vital and gently dilapidated elements of city life: ‘Q is for quemar, to burn a house to the ground beneath, / making a block full of row homes look like a smile that's missing its two front teeth.’ The subtle presence of the girl's personal narrative and her nuanced understanding of what makes her neighborhood home set this ABC book apart.” -- Publishers Weekly, starred review
