Two children’s book superstars—#1 New York Times bestseller Jacqueline Woodson, the author of The Day You Begin, and Leo Espinosa, the illustrator of Islandborn­—join forces to celebrate the joy and freedom of summer in the city, which is gloriously captured in their rhythmic text and lively art.

It's getting hot outside, hot enough to turn on the hydrants and run through the water--and that means it's finally summer in the city! Released from school and reveling in their freedom, the kids on one Brooklyn block take advantage of everything summertime has to offer: Freedom from morning till night to go out to meet their friends and make the streets their playground--jumping double Dutch, playing tag and hide-and-seek, building forts, chasing ice cream trucks, and best of all, believing anything is possible. That is, till their moms call them home for dinner. But not to worry--they know there is always tomorrow to do it all over again--because the block belongs to them and they rule their world.

In Brooklyn in the summer not so long ago, children had to go outside and find ways to entertain themselves like playing tag or kick the can. They would get excited for the ice cream truck and everybody was a friend. There was a lot less hate and a lot less crime. Things were simple without electronics to distract them. Children had to go out and interact with each other instead of sitting behind a television screen.

THE WORLD BELONGED TO US brings the reader back to the time before electronics ruled our lives and when children enjoyed the world around them. They could do anything their imagination came up with and had friends all around the block. The illustrations bring a nostalgic feel and makes me wish I was a part of those Brooklyn summers. They're inclusive in races and I love how the author talks about how different languages were spoken too. It didn't matter where you were from because everyone enjoyed each other's company. I have to say that I also love the dedication "To my childhood friends, tag you're all it." It's witty and brought a smile to my face.


Final Verdict: THE WORLD BELONGED TO US is a story of friendship and outdoor activities and is perfect to inspire children to get off their electronics. For those parents who want to show their children how much fun you can have with very little, this is the perfect book.

EFFECTIVE SPELL CASTER THAT CAN HELP YOU GET YOUR LOVER BACK IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS


My name is Mylene Sint Jago from Curacao I'm here to testify how DR SARUMAN use his powerful spell to save my marriage I urge you not to ignore this message, My husband and I have been married for about 7 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy, and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, and he hardly cared about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn’t even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that DR. SARUMAN can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships, and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family and I are living together happily again. All thanks to DR. SARUMAN. If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
