Summary:
"Alice loves her neighborhood. She loves the maples trees and marigolds and the colorful balconies on her street. But -- "grumble, grumble, more construction" -- it seems not everyone does. "Poor street," says Alice, then she has an idea. "Dear Street ..." she begins to write, and when she's finished writing her love letter, she hides it for someone to find. A grumpy neighbor discovers the anonymous letter and her mood brightens. As the seasons pass, Alice writes more letters to the things she loves, hiding them for people to find and transforming grumbles into smiles and wonder. Until one gloomy day, when Alice herself can't stop grumbling ... Lindsay Zier-Vogel perfectly captures the everyday joys and simple pleasures experienced by children, and the transformative capacity of sharing what we love about where we live. Alice, a girl full of compassion and optimism, demonstrates that a small, simple act can have a powerful impact on others and lead to a ripple effect. This is a delightful, uplifting picture book that celebrates community and connecting with others, and inspires readers to look around them in a more grateful and engaged manner."-- Provided by publisher.
