Honey and her younger brother, Benji, are new to the neighborhood. As Honey and Benji explore their town, they meet new friends, and encounter a special lady called Mrs. Mayberry. At Mrs. Mayberry's Play and Learn House, they enjoy books, music, games, and snacks. And when a surprise visit from Mayor Crawley presents the gang with an unusual task, determination and hard work help them conquer an exceptional challenge and reap the rewards of community spirit.
In this playful picture book, Alma Powell introduces young readers to the basic principles of America's Promise -- caring adults, safe places, a healthy start, marketable skills, and opportunities to serve -- and inspires us all to make America a better place for our children.
Mrs. Powell is donating all of her royalties for this book to America's Promise -- The Alliance for Youth.
A portion of the publisher's proceeds will also be donated to America's Promise.
