Neighborwood: Earth Literacy for Kids by April Manning supports the cause of 'going green,' which exposes young readers to earth literacy. It speaks about recycling of various materials and diversity of communities. It is more of an educational journey for children, exposing them to the concept of earth literacy through the Neighborhood Land Ambassador (a young girl) called Lamb. The animals in the story add to the educational theme of the book.

No children's story book is complete without illustrations. Illustrations are a good way of getting a message across to children and this book is full of images. I felt the book's message is a little profound but the illustrations in crayon make it more understandable for younger readers. The interactive questions make the subject interesting and it is a clever way of understanding how much a young reader can grasp. This informative book can be read aloud and used for story telling.

The book covers many relevant topics. The idea of pen pals is also introduced. The book is bright and vivid, and appeals to all your senses. It helps children understand the universe in a better way. The book is a disciplined effort by the author to introduce children to the concept of loving nature.
