Praise

“In this heartfelt celebration of working together, racially diverse young children frolic and unite in an urban setting. The warm illustrations convey the importance of teamwork as little ones help out around the house and outdoors. The children also come together to stage plays and put on concerts. Straightforward, accessible text. . . . The children are joined by supportive parents and friendly pets. . . . A good choice for establishing a solid early learning environment; the emphasis on social skills and positive attributes such as sharing, responsibility, support, tidiness, and collaboration is strong and clear. An upbeat demonstration that working together can make the world a more loving, supportive, and welcome place.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Observes collaborative efforts at home and within a racially diverse community. . . . Cheerfully rendered day of work and play. Alongside Phumiruk’s crisp digitally finished spreads, Gundersheimer’s lines scan and rhyme satisfyingly. It’s an optimistic starting place for discussions about cooperation and mutual aid.” —Publishers Weekly

“The story and lesson are easy to understand and catchy, with a rhyme scheme and chorus: ‘We make things better, better when we work together.’ The text, written by children’s music artist Mister G, is clear and tells the many different, simple ways children can help in their community, using vocabulary that they can understand. Phumiruk’s illustrations show these actions, in scenes that translate credibly to readers’ own neighborhoods and surroundings. The art brings specific details to the words, illuminating them and lifting the text right off the page. A book about everyday teamwork and love that is sure to inspire readers to work together in their own communities.” —School Library Journal
