Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-These books look at different types of living situations. All five titles begin with the same introductory paragraph that describes neighborhoods as a part of a larger community and all go on to elaborate on aspects of daily life, such as transportation, safety, work, and recreation. Each volume ends with a section on how people come together on shared projects. Full-color photos fill most of the pages and text is limited to two paragraphs per spread. Captions explain the pictures but do not note the location. City is somewhat awkward, since readers might wish to identify the metropolitan areas pictured. These introductions to neighborhoods that are vital parts of the social fabric of the United States provide useful and attractive support to community units in a social-studies curriculum.-Kathleen Meulen, Blakely Elementary School, Bainbridge Island, WA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
