A joyful, rhyming picture book that is an ode to community and outdoor play
Ride, roll, run.
Friends and fun!
This energetic picture book celebrates community and friendship, following children as they play their way through their vibrant neighborhood. Author and educator Valerie Bolling’s rhyming text makes for an exciting read-aloud and is paired with stunning illustrations by Sabrena Khadija.
"Although the digital illustrations suggest an urban setting with geometric architecture, children growing up in the country or suburbs will easily relate—the delight experienced as the school day draws to a close is, after all, sure to resonate with many. . .Pure joy."Kirkus Reviews —
