Picturebook:Yo, Jo!

Rachel Isadora has used collage art to create a vivid book about a boy's afternoon in an urban african american neighbourhood. Two brothers wait outside their home for their grandfather to come home for dinner, and as they wait, they interact with kids, adults and animals in their neighbourhood. A warm and lively depiction of an inner city community where everyone knows eachother, and nobody is a stranger. Kids and adults alike will appreciate the sense of easy belonging that this book projects.
Ages 2-5
