Everyday a young girl is disheartened by the things in her neighborhood: the trash on the streets, the graffiti on the walls, and the homeless woman that sleeps in a box.  When she learns the word "beautiful" at school, she sets out to find "something beautiful" in her surroundings.  In her search, this little girl learns to see beyond the barren ugliness of her environment to find beauty in her friendships, her family, and herself.

From the Publisher:

"This moving picture book offers a shining testament to the ability of human beings to find "something beautiful" in even the most unlikely places. . . .Soentpiet's paintings are luminously lifelike. [T]he paintings focus on a community so real, readers can almost feel the sunlight on their faces."
--Publishers Weekly

From the Inside Flap:

A little girl longs to see beyond the scary sights on the sidewalk and the angry scribbling in the halls of her building. When her teacher writes the word beautiful on the blackboard, the girl decides to look for something beautiful in her neighborhood. Her neighbors tell her about their own beautiful things. Miss Delphine serves her a "beautiful" fried fish sandwich at her diner. At Mr. Lee's "beautiful" fruit store, he offers her an apple. Old Mr. Sims invites her to touch a smooth stone he always carries. Beautiful means "something that when you have it, your heart is happy," the girl thinks. Her search for "something beautiful" leaves her feeling much happier. She has experienced the beauty of friendship and the power of hope.
