A Review of Trade Books in Social Studies Dealing with Communities.
Hoover, Virginia A.
Fifty-five trade books that will help second graders increase their understanding and knowledge of the concept of communities are cited in this annotated bibliography. Dates of publication range from the 1940's to the present. The bibliography is organized by three major categories: local communities, national communities, and international communities. The second grade social studies text "Living in Communities" (Silver Burdett) was used to identify concepts within these areas. The trade books have reading levels from first through fourth grade and include both fiction and nonfiction. A content summary of each book and tips on how the book could be used in the social studies classroom are provided. The bibliography concludes with a summary of the concepts used when identifying the books. (RM)
