In the book, a teacher asks, “What is the best thing about our city?” A student goes looking for the answer. Different parts of her city love to talk and tell her why they are the best. As the book progresses, she explores and finds out that cities have a voice. The book is targeted for ages 4-8, so it’s appropriate for children in pre-kindergarten through second grade.
Coloring sheets and “Tell a Story” sheets modeled after the popular Mad Libs series, along with other resources, can be printed and enjoyed anywhere. There’s a City Activity Book for elementary students that includes a dot-to-dot activity, a crossword puzzle, trivia and more.
You can use the digital books and other resources below to teach while enjoying fun activities with the city leaders of tomorrow.
