Last week, we learned all about the people in our community and the services they provide. Here is a list of the books that I had available for the kids and parents….
What Does A Teacher Do? By Felicia Lowenstein
-This book is part of a community helpers series. The other books include What Does A Construction Worker Do?, What Does A Dentist Do? and What Does A Nurse Do?.
Bank Tellers By Cynthia Klingel and Robert B. Noyed
– This book is also part of a community helpers series by Compass Point Books. Other books in the series are about chefs, farmers, fire fighters, and librarians.
Guide Dogs By Judith Janda Presnall
-This books is part of an “Animals With Jobs” series. Other titles include Animal Actors, Horse Therapists, and Police Dogs.
In My Town By Mari C. Schuh
– This book is part of a “In My..” series. More books in the series include In My Home, In My Town, In My State, and In My World.
Who Am I? By Wiley Blevins
– This is another Compass Point book that included many community helpers. It is non-fiction and has many activities for kids to do.
Police Officers By Jacqueline Laks Gorman
– This is yet another book from a series about “People in My Community.” Other subjects include bus drivers, firefighters, mail carriers, and teachers.
When I Grow Up By Dennis Haley and Marci Brown
-This is a really cool idea for a book series. On one side of the page, there is a section for parents to read and on the other side is a section for beginning readers. Of course, preschoolers wouldn’t be able to read their page yet, but the text is bigger and it would be a great introduction to reading. Each page features a different career. Other subjects include the seasons and pets.
Hooray for Our Heroes! (A Sesame Street Book) By Sarah Albee
Officer Buckle and Gloria By Peggy Rathmann
-One of my favorite books! I recommend trying it out. It is an easy way for kids to use their inferring skills.
All Around Town By Judy Press
– This is a book that features different crafts based on towns and neighborhoods. I had this available for parents to look through to inspire crafts at home. The book is organized by different areas in a town, such as a train station and post office, and includes different crafts based on each place.
Meet My Grandmother: She’s a Supreme Court Justice By Lisa Tucker Mcelroy
