The five animals who live on Sprout Street are excited when Mili, a new girl from Hawaii, moves in. Although she's a little nervous about making new friends and fitting in and she misses her old friends from back home, Mili is a great addition to the group, and each one is thrilled to add her to their list of friends. A short story follows each character as he/she enjoys everyday life. Although at first embarrassed that her art is nowhere as good as Mili's, Violet finds someone to share her pass ...more

I loved the first installment so I don't know why I waited so long to read the follow-up. The Sprout Street Neighbors welcome a new tenant into the fold and it causes many different and sometimes surprising reactions. I highly recommend this series as a read aloud because kids will enjoy the adventures and adults will be enthralled with the storytelling as well.

The New Arrival is the second book of the Sprout Street Neighbors series. Mili has just moved from Hawaii, and all of the Sprout Street neighbors are eager to meet her. Each chapter covers a different character's budding friendship with Mili, and finally, Mili has her own chapter where she comes to embrace her new community while still maintaining her Hawaiian roots. I love this series, and this second book is nearly as good as the first. Kids will relate to the neighbors' excitement over a new ...more

Emma has breakfast every day with Mili, until the day she doesn't and she assumes that Mili is planning a surprise for her. Henry mistakenly tells Mi ...more

Hmmm. I love the art and the interconnectedness of the characters - all of them living in the same building. But I did find it difficult to get into the book. I think it was because there were so many characters. The characters' problems are right for the reading level - similar kinds of things they would be going through. I thought I would be more excited because it has the great art and white space and font and short chapters to support beginning readers.

The animals who live at 24 Sprout Street are good neighbors to one another. When someone new moves in, each resident experiences the expectations and hesitations of meeting someone new. This is a gentle story of friendship and learning to be a good neighbor. Whimsical black and white illustrations on every page depict the animals in everyday activities that a child can relate to.

I didn't read the first book which introduces the characters, so I occasionally felt I had been dropped into the story. I found myself rereading to keep the characters straight. The conversation about voting would help youngsters understand the importance of appropriate criteria when casting a ballot.

This second Sprout Street Neighbors book is just as charming as the first! There's something about the characters and illustrations that remind me of Little Bear and evoke major nostalgia. A new series with a classic feel!

Just as darling as the first Sprout Street Neighbors book. Perfect for those kids reading their first chapter books.
