In this stunning pop-up book, meet seven animal builders and see how their unique skills help them survive—and to live together in harmony in the neighborwood.

At the edge of the forest a spider spins her web, while nearby, a hummingbird uses strands of spider silk to build her nest. These are just two of the many animals who live side by side, sharing the resources they need to construct homes, traps, or places to store food. From award-winning artist Shawn Sheehy comes an up-close look at the architectural masterpieces of the animal world, featuring an array of beautiful, lifelike pop-ups originally crafted with handmade paper. The earthy exploration culminates in a breathtaking final spread showing all the neighborwood creatures together.

Review:

This beautifully crafted pop-up introduces a spectrum of wildlife residing together in the same “neighborwood.” ... Sheehy carefully links one neighbor to the next until they are brought together in an impressive final display of their shared habitat. Readers will find lots to delight in and learn in this gorgeous book.
—Booklist (starred review)

Sheehy makes an impressive children’s book debut, using dramatically unfolding pop-ups to introduce seven woodland animals with special construction skills of their own.... A visually striking and enriching overview of animals living independently and as part of an ecosystem.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

An auspicious debut, imparting a worthy message in playful language and harmonious, sophisticated paper design.
—Kirkus Reviews

The new standard for pop-up books is sky-high, and this ingenious introduction to woodland ecology is up to the challenge.
—News & Observer (from the Chicago Tribune)

Providing an intriguing peek inside an ecosystem, this book enchants even as it instructs.
—BookPage

—ReadTheSpirit

A brilliant offering, “Welcome to the Neighborhood” will have kids (and adults, too) thinking about nature and how intricately involved animals and humans are with the balance of life.
