Building Places to Play (Paperback)
Welcome to Playtown, where the Local Area Builders are planning places to have fun in their community. In this cheerfully designed volume, young community members suggest new facilities that would improve their neighborhood. Readers follow along, considering what a park, playground, sports club, and more add to their area. They also practice map skills and learn community-centered vocabulary as the town grows. A final activity suggests that readers create a map of places to play in their own community. This entertaining book with accessible language and fun illustrations is a great companion to the early elementary social studies curriculum.
