My daughter loved this sequel. Judy plays an important part in bringing together the whole community. She shows love and compassion for others!
We loved this book as much as the first! Judy is such a great example of what being a good neighbor is. She works hard to improve the world around her and leave things and people better than she found them. Thank you for such an uplifting book!
My 10 yo daughter loves both of the books in this set. I liked the second book even more than the first, although I liked the first book too. In this second book of the set, Judy helps to transform her aunt’s community when she’s visiting there for the summer. This book addresses some real issues, similar to ones we face in our communities today. You feel Judy’s confusion, but watch her become more and more confident as she helps others, with an exciting finale at the end.
I didn’t read Book 1, Number Eleven Poplar Street, but I didn’t need to to fully understand or enjoy Book 2, Back to Poplar Street. This was an empowering story that showed the old and the young, the rich and the poor, and the locals and the foreigner overcoming prejudices to come together in a unified effort to improve their community with their unique contributions.
My 10 year old daughter and I enjoyed this book. I loved that young Judy was an example of how one person can make a big difference and influence others to do good. There was a good sense of community, teamwork, compassion and service. A breath of fresh air compared to other literature for young girls!
Judy is excited to return to her aunt Maria’s house–this time for the entire summer! Some things have changed on Poplar Street, but those changes aren’t all bad. One day, Judy discovers an abandoned park, which leads her into all sorts of adventures. The park isn’t the only thing on Judy’s mind, though. Will she be able to help her friend Tony with the problem he is trying to solve? Find our in this second Poplar Street book!
Don’t miss Number Eleven Poplar Street!
