The Weber Street Wonder Work Crewby Maxwell Newhouse
Synopses & Reviews
For some families, part-time jobs for children are a way to impart all kinds of skills and experience. For others, it’s a matter of necessity if kids want spending money. Maxwell Newhouse, who is a plumber as well as an author and artist, understands this. The Weber Street Wonder Work Crew is a group of kids who have lots to offer their neighbors: from babysitting cranky toddlers to lending a hand in a garden, washing windows, and even helping an elderly lady who needs support to keep up with her friends online.
Lively folk-style paintings work with a simple text to inspire kids to take part in their own communities.
Kids in a community work to help their neighbors and earn money at the same time.
