Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Look Where We Live by Scot Ritchie

Title: Look where we live – A first book of community Building  Look where we live

Author and Illustrator: Scot Ritchie

Publisher: Kids Can Press

Published: April 1st, 2015

Rating:   4/5

Five friends find out about their local community when there is a street fair to raise money for their library. They explore their community, the places, businesses and people who live there as well as public areas. This book gives information about this community and asks questions about where the reader lives, promoting discussion and further exploration from the book to the reader’s local community. It looks at shops, residential homes, community gardens, litter and much, much more.

I believe this book would be a great starting point for anyone seeking to promote interest in the local community in young children. It is filled with examples of how communities work and how all members have roles to play within it. Teachers and parents in the UK would have to adapt some of the terms used to enable their pupils to understand some aspects, but it would still be an excellent stimuli for learning about communities.

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley too
