a bus called heaven by Bob Graham

As a city planner with a grassroots leaning, this book is the type I want my daughter to remember from her childhood. A bus is abandoned in the neighborhood, and people turn it into a sort of community center. It hosts parties and meetings and other rendezvous. But it's blocking the sidewalk and gets towed away. They get it back and park it in the vacant lot behind their house.

Cat and Fish illustrated by Neil Curtis and written by Joan Grant

Cat and Fish are unlikely friends. This book describes how their relationship begins in sweet words and stunningly beautiful images. I wish I had created these images. I've held on to this gorgeous book from the library for far too long.
