Set to the familiar tune of "The More We Get Together," this new addition to Barefoot Books' bestselling singalong collection features a diverse group of children who work together to make their urban neighborhood cleaner, friendlier, and safer for everyone. Sing along as the community bicycles and recycles together, volunteers at an assisted living home, participates in a letter-writing campaign and finally gathers around a potluck meal. End matter includes an age-appropriate introduction to recycling, activism, community gardens, teamwork and more, as well as actionable ways for children to get involved in their own neighborhoods. A QR code on the book provides access to video animation and audio.
