Some commonalities are the places that we need to buy groceries, mail packages, or get help. With this approachable set, readers visit the many notable places they may encounter in their town, city, or county. What happens at each community landmark is covered in age-appropriate detail and accessible language. Full-color photographs closely correlate with the texts, showing readers what to expect at each landmark and who they may meet in places like the library, hospital, and firehouse.
