This is a cute book. My 5 year old loved looking at the pictures and listening to the story. We talked about events that we have done in our community to help relate it better. It has a list of vocabulary at the back with definitions.

Look Where We Live! Was a great way to encourage ideas about the community with my pre-k learner. He loved the visuals and was making connections between jobs and people of the community that contribute to our safety and our basic needs. He was able to accurately identify and explain what most of the art was representing such as the community gardens/gardeners and the police officers. He loved learning about the facts within the book and talking about what the towns people where doing to contribute to society within the context of the book pages.
