it was amazing

I was heading for a 4-star rating when I paused for a moment because all things combined (the text and the art), this story is bigger than a pickup game of basketball played on the neighborhood courts, especially as you take in the illustrations on the endpapers (the mural "We live here"). There you'll find a beautiful representation of seeds sown by some of those who came before us, paving the way for all manner of dreams and pursuits to be realized. Daria Peoples-Riley's work encourages the reader to work hard, play to win, and not give up because "We. Got. Next."

I look forward to adding this book to our collection. It would make a great addition to our K-5 library. I will plan to also read Daria's debut picture book, This is it.
