The People on My Street
Judy Kentor Schmauss
Illustrated by Barry Ablett
Fiction (Series)
Ages 6 to 9
Barron’s Educational Series, 2006, 0-7641-3294-6
  Lets us join a boy as he introduces us to some of the people who live on his street. There is Zeke who brings groceries to the little boy’s house. Then there is Eve who can teach him how to read and Pete who is a policeman. Together the people on the little boy’s street form a community, helping one another out and sharing good times.
  In this simple little book the author introduces the long “e” sound to beginner readers. Children will get to practice certain words and phrases several times throughout the book, thus becoming familiar with them. Other words will offer them the opportunity to sounding out the letters and they will also have the illustrations to help them identify what is being said in the text.
  At the back of the book the author includes a discussion about communities and she gives her readers an activity to try as well.
  This is one of the nine titles in the Level Two Readers’s Clubhouse series.
