Booklist - 02/01/2016 When Lily and her parents arrive at their new home in New York City, she’s surprised to see how different it is from their old one. Where is the front yard? Where are the flowers? Will she even like it here? As they explore the neighborhood, she notices many things: girls who wave to her, signs in Spanish, a store with dresses from India, another with masks from Kenya, and a public library. After making a new friend, she begins to enjoy city life. The simply written story introduces aspects of urban living in an appealing way. Diversity is intrinsic to both the story and the illustrations, which digitally combine watercolor, gouache, and pencil elements. An appended page suggests three activities designed to extend the story through writing and drawing. Readers who enjoy Lily’s upbeat story, the first beginning-reader book in the publisher’s new Dive into Reading series, will also want to check out Want to Play? (2016), the simultaneously published second volume about Lily and her friends. - Copyright 2016 Booklist.
