Can a city be beautiful if there’s trash on the streets and graffiti on the walls? A little girl finds out when her teacher writes the word “beautiful” on the blackboard and the girl decides to look for beauty in her neighborhood.
There’s the “beautiful” fried fish sandwich at Miss Delphine diner, Mr. Lee’s “beautiful” fruit store, and the “beautiful” smooth stone Old Mr. Sims always carries. The girl soon understands that beautiful means “that when you have it, your heart is happy.” Young readers will enjoy appreciating the beauty of friendship and the power of hope in this encouraging story.
