Khalil and Mr. Hagerty and the Backyard Treasures

Written by Tricia Springstubb, Illustrated by Elaheh Taherian

Khalil and his family live upstairs, and Mr. Hagerty lives down stairs. Although not having a lot in common, Khalil and Mr. Hagerty become friends. Khalil likes to dig for treasure while Mr. Hagerty tends to his garden in the backyard. They help each other when that can’t figure out a word, whether it be Khalil trying to read a word he doesn’t know, or Mr. Hagerty trying to remember what something is called.

This book is a cute story of friendship and working together. Fun pictures made of a cut-paper collage bring the story to life. I just wish that the story was a little longer. A good read-aloud for a small group when you can take some time to explain a little of what is going on.
