Bullard, Lisa This is my Town 24 pgs. (Millbrook) Lerner, 2017. $24.99 NON-FICTION
This book relates quite a bit of information about components of a town while telling the story of a young girl who gets the chance to ride a bike in an upcoming parade. As she starts her journey to obtaining a bike and learning to ride, we learn about the kinds of places in a town, community helpers, and the difference between a town, city, and rural area. Bright large illustrations fill each page.
This is perfect for our Kindergarten teachers who do a large unit each year on location and maps. The addition of the community helpers also works perfectly with their curriculum. The pages are large enough to share with a class for a read-a-loud.
