An endearing new dual-language book, ¡Mi comunidad! • My Community! celebrates community helpers, with two companion songs (Spanish and English) to read and sing together. ¡Mi comunidad! • My Community! is a joyful walk around the community to get to know people who help us stay safe, learn and thrive. With vibrant illustrations by Puerto Rican artist Mónica Paola Rodriguez, the book includes a glossary of community helper roles to jump start conversations at home and school about the many ways people help and serve others. The brand new songs, “My Community” and “Mi Comunidad,” are available exclusively via the QR code included in the back of the book.

This energetic delightful book is a dual-language book that kids will not only have fun reading but be educated as well. It is a celebration of community told in both Spanish and English. The tour of this community introduces a diverse group of people who help keep the community running smoothly and are interconnected for the good of all the people who live there. This community tour will highlight those people who help others stay safe, learn, and thus live happily. The busy colourful illustrations enrich the narrative and the book includes a glossary of community helpers and the important roles that they serve in. Another fun feature is a QR code at the back of the book that unlocks exclusive songs that kids can scan and enjoy! I highly recommend this book.
