Quinito’s family and friends all have important jobs in the neighborhood jobs that help make the community a happy place where people know each other and work together. Readers join this lively youngster as he introduces his special folks: a cousin who goes to clown school, a neighbor who sews a wedding dress for a bank teller who will marry the local mailman, and so many more.
José Ramírez’ jewel colors and sensitive rendering bring this charming journey to life, encouraging children to make similar tours of their own neighborhoods and to recognize that they too are very busy members of a tightly-knit community.

Starred Review. Kindergarten-Grade 2–What makes a neighborhood? Is it the shops, the buildings, the roads, the schools? Or is it the people? Answering this question is easy for effervescent young Quinito, who knows most of his neighbors–in fact, he is related to many of them. From his carpenter mother and nurse father to his aunt the muralist and cousin Tita, a clown, his is a network of love that encompasses teachers, crossing guards, bankers, postal workers, dance instructors, and truck drivers. Ramírez's vibrant acrylic-on-canvas paintings bring this community to life, the primitive forms fairly bursting from the book's pages with their deep hues and sense of emotional warmth. The simple text, equally good in both English and Spanish, is in a font that resembles a child's printing. Its child appeal, lovely message, and potential inspiration to young authors and artists make Quinito's Neighborhood a place that youngsters will enjoy visiting.
