My Community: Jobs – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Children will learn about important jobs performed by people in the community in this appealing series. Sentences of up to six words in length convey information about each profession, including what the job entails and the tools required. The text appears in large black type on a clean white background with a soothing pale green and yellow geometric design. This uncluttered layout allows beginning readers to focus on the words, not on the graphics. Crisp photos show the workers carrying out tasks, and those that include kids interacting with the professionals are relatable and believable. A visual glossary includes small, colorful images and a brief definition, and the opposite page identifies pictorially four of the workers’ tools. Additional material can be accessed by visiting the publisher’s website. A solid choice for emergent readers curious about their community and the people within it.
