They’re everywhere: Next door, above, and even below. More often than not, they are a mystery, a presence suggested by low hums, footfalls, or perhaps a slammed door. These beguiling beings are neighbors—all around us and ever-present and yet, somehow, surprisingly elusive.
This contemplative picture book by debut author-illustrator Kasya Denisevich explores the many ways that we think about those we exist among but who remain strangers until we make the brave—and affirming—decision to connect. As Neighbors illustrates so beautifully, that moment of connection is a portal to a world of possibility.
