Horn Book Review

This series is set in a homey, diversely populated community where neighborliness reigns. Whether they are having a camp out, searching for a lost pet, or celebrating at a block party, Jada, Jamal, Josh, and Carlita are good neighbors, great problem-solvers, and even better friends. Henninger's ink and watercolor illustrations set the semi-urban scene and capture the stories' cheery mood perfectly. [Review covers the following Green Light Readers titles: Bradford Street Buddies: Backyard Camp-Out and Bradford Street Buddies: Block Party Surprise.] (c) Copyright 2016.
