Community Helper Books

In the spring, first graders learn all about community helpers, the people who do jobs that make our neighborhoods healthy and happy places to live.  Here are some of the books that I use to teach kids about different jobs.

The story of Elizabeth Blackwell, the first American woman to become a doctor.

Step by step, how the houses we live in are constructed.  Great introduction to the building trades!

From drawing the blueprints to constructing each story and painting every wall, this is the perfect explanation of how a tall structure can be so strong and stable.  Introduces many, many building professions clearly, in kid-friendly language.

A charming guide to careers.

The story of the first Latina Supreme Court Justice.  Bilingual text: English/Spanish.
