A picture-book celebration of the ordinary people—grownups and kids—who hold our world together by going about their daily lives and work.
We celebrate cops, firefighters, and soldiers, and rightly so. But let’s also celebrate teachers, bus drivers, grocery clerks, mail carriers, and the other folks who keep the world spinning around every day. And let’s give a nod to kids, too—kids who are kind and brave and help each other. They’re heroes too. In structure, flow, and pitch, very much like Pat Brisson’s Before We Eat. Anait Semirdzhyan is the illustrator of our award-winning picture book The Arabic Quilt and of The Cottonwood Tree.
