Inhaltsangabe: In communities large and small, we find goods and services. But we also find places for fun and enjoyment to keep us happy and healthy.
From School Library Journal: Gr 3-5-As many librarians know, community helper projects are ubiquitous during the school year, and resources related to this subject are always in demand. This series details the who, what, and where of communities, describing what everyday life is like as well as the experiences of helpers such as police officers, firefighters, doctors, and trash collectors. The series also underscores the importance of education and training for specific careers and allows readers to see their own place in society and how people must work together to help a community function (and have some fun while they're at it). Text boxes with supplemental facts (and some jokes) pepper the narratives, which are clear, well flowing, and informative. A "What Did You Learn?" section with true/false questions at the end of each book helps readers recap and absorb the material. VERDICT A useful series that deals with community issues in an engaging way.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
