Set to the familiar tune of “The More We Get Together,” this new addition to Barefoot Books’ bestselling singalong collection features a diverse group of children who work together to make their urban neighborhood cleaner, friendlier, and safer for everyone. Sing along as the community bicycles and recycles together, volunteers at an assisted living home, participates in a letter-writing campaign and finally gathers around a potluck meal. End matter includes an age-appropriate introduction to recycling, activism, community gardens, teamwork and more, as well as actionable ways for children to get involved in their own neighborhoods.

Celeste Cortright grew up in Connecticut, USA, and now works as a design director when she’s not writing children’s books for Barefoot! She and her partner live in Boston, Massachusetts, USA with their cat.

Betania Zacarias has illustrated dozens of children's books and products, and her work is published all over the world. She grew up in Argentina and now lives and works in Barcelona, Spain with her partner and two curious and imaginative boys who are her infinite source of inspiration. In her work, she uses a lot of colors, textures and different patterns that result in playful illustrations.
