SLJ Review of Meet the Community Helpers
Early readers will love to learn about how veterinarians, bus drivers, construction workers, and garbage collectors work hard to serve people and animals in their communities. Each book features common situations associated with each job: Dr. Jenny has a busy day treating animals at her clinic, including a turtle and a cat, while Tom and Tammy the garbage collectors start their day before the sun comes up to make sure their community stays clean and healthy.
Each volume includes a short reading guide for educators and caregivers, a one-question quiz at the end of the narrative to ensure comprehension, a picture glossary and index, and a diagram of common tools used in each profession. Easy-to-read text, smooth story line transitions, and simple illustrations make this series ideal for those who are beginning to read independently or with the help of a caregiver.
VERDICT: This simple yet versatile series is a great addition to smaller early learning collections.
