When 10-year-old Allie learns that her family will be moving from a two-family home to their very own house, she ' s hesitant until she finds out they will be living on a street with the magical name of Strawberry Hill. That changes everything! But strawberries aren't the only things Allie will have to look for in her new neighborhood. As Allie struggles to find a new "best friend" and adjust to all of the changes she faces, she takes readers on her journey to make Strawberry Hill feel like home. Strawberry Hill is a timeless story that will captivate readers, just as Mary Ann Hoberman's picture books and poems have for more than fifty years.
