Dear Street
Lindsay Zier-Vogel

A girl shares her love for her neighborhood, and finds that love multiplies.

Alice loves her street. But others, “Grumble, grumble, more construction, grumble,” don’t agree. So Alice writes her street a love letter, which she leaves for someone to find. As Alice encounters people grumbling about other things – the park, falling leaves, the snow – she writes those thing love letters, too, and leaves them to be found. Then, one day, when Alice herself is grumbling, she discovers a letter someone else has written to the spring crocuses. And Alice feels the joy she’s been spreading come back to her!

A timely message for kids everywhere: showing gratitude changes perspectives and lifts spirits!
