Look Where We Live

Look Where We Live!
A First Book of Community Building
Scot Ritchie
Five friends join the street fair to help their community raise money for the library. The children check out each of the various activities and learn more about their community. They learn how they can fit in and make a difference.

Each page has bright, colorful illustrations that are full of detail. The pictures help tell the story. Each page has a description of what the children find as they visit each part of the street fair. Then in bold print the author tells why that particular person is contributing to their community. At the back of the book are instructions on how to make a puzzle that illustrates community. There is also a glossary for those harder to understand words. This book would be a great addition to a classroom or home school curriculum. The book encourages unselfishness, awareness of others, kindness, compassion, and respect of others. It also opens up the opportunity for dialogue about community.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
