A park connects us

Sarah Nelson (Author), Ellen Rooney (Illustrator), Stacey Roderick (Editor)
"A Park Connects Us is a picture book celebration of the urban park -- that rare space in the city that is truly shared by all. From the opening spread in which the park "spreads out its arms and welcomes us in, whoever we are ..." readers are invited to explore and enjoy all that this green space in the middle of the city has to offer. Spread by spread, we explore this beautifully imagined park, along with its many visitors -- a number of whom we see repeated throughout, involved in their own mini-narratives. Spread by spread, we enjoy the many different places to play, to be inspired, to connect with wildlife, to come together and dance, to come together and protest, to contemplate, to simply breathe and to be. Spread by spread, we see how urban parks are a space for everyone. Simple and sweet, the spirit of community runs throughout A Park Connects Us."-- Provided by publisher
