Community Helpers - School Library Journal Review - November 2019

Posted by Rourke Educational Media Admin on

A variety of common professions are explored in this series, which could appeal to readers up to the age of eight. Builders, firefighters, veterinarians, and more are depicted as essential community helpers, with simple sentences about how each worker contributes to the greater good. Some of the text appears inside a drawing of a mobile phone screen, which may resonate with readers who use tablets or phones to access information at home. A blend of charming illustrations and full-color photographs, all of which affirm diversity, are appropriately spaced between text. The definition of “community helper” is provided at the beginning of each book, making each volume acceptable as a stand-alone selection. Other topics covered include the basic functions of each job and short activities for readers to explore more about the jobs.

VERDICT An ideal purchase for daycare centers or early childhood classrooms.
