Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
A community is once again defined, and the point is made that communities need helpers. These helpers could be craftsmen, doctors, teachers, librarians, and more. If the community is growing, then there will be builders working on roads and houses. If it is a modern community, then there will be a need for water and electricity and the people who provide and maintain these services. In addition to the teachers and librarians at school, there may be school bus drivers, crossing guards, and nurses. The nurses, doctors, and other medical personnel work to keep a community healthy. Should there be a problem, then emergency works may be called upon, and these could include paramedics, firefighters, and police officers. Often overlooked, but an important part of community life are the many volunteers who work without pay to make their communities a better place to live. Simple declarative sentences and questions accompanied by photographs of children from a variety of ethnic backgrounds set on crisp white pages make this an attractive book. It is a Level "G" book in the "My World" series. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
