9780060295844: On the Town: A Community Adventure

Charlie's homework was to explore the people and places in his community. "What is my community?" he asked his mother. So they took a walk to find out. With the bounce and humor that have characterized all her popular books over the years, Judith Caseley once again proves that when it comes to the primary school world, there is very little that she doesn't know. Charlie and his mother take a walk that can be taken by anyone with a keen sense of fun -- and open eyes and an inquiring mind.

About the Author:

Judith Caseley says, "When I was a little girl, I fell in love with Abraham Lincoln. I was drawn to the kindness and melancholy I saw in his face. My sister Jean and I prayed to a framed portrait of him that hung on our bedroom wall. To this day, when I see Lincoln's likeness on the wall of a school auditorium, my heart lifts with gladness or my eyes fill with tears. I remember the fierce secrets we told him, the joys and sorrows that were for his ears only. It was a private act of communion, and we called him A. L."

Judith Caseley is the author-artist of such favorite picture books as On the Town: A Community Adventure; Bully; Mama, Coming and Going; and Dear Annie. She lives on Long Island, New York, with her two children.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-This simply told tale explores a subject that is routinely studied in the primary grades. Armed with a new black notebook and a homework assignment to explore his community and the people who live in it, Charlie and his mother walk around town and think about what the boy should write down. They run a variety of familiar errands that help him understand the many different establishments that make up his community-such as the bank, the post office, the fire station, and the barbershop-and he draws pictures of the people he meets in each locale. Caseley's illustrations, rendered in watercolors and colored pencil outlined in black ink, provide details through the creative use of borders and spot art that showcases Charlie's notebook entries. This useful title is sure to be a popular choice in libraries everywhere.
