Charlie's homework was to study his community and find out what kinds of people make it up. So Charlie and his mom go exploring around town and visit people such as barbers, garbage collectors, policemen, librarians, postmen, pharmacists, firemen, waitresses, florists, and train conductors. He draws pictures of them all in his journal and writes down all of their names. Before Charlie goes to bed at night, he realizes that he forgot the most important part of his community- his home and his family! A great read for ages 3-6.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060295848, Hardcover)

Charlie's homework was to explore the people and places in his community. "What is my community?" he asked his mother. So they took a walk to find out. With the bounce and humor that have characterized all her popular books over the years, Judith Caseley once again proves that when it comes to the primary school world, there is very little that she doesn't know. Charlie and his mother take a walk that can be taken by anyone with a keen sense of fun -- and open eyes and an inquiring mind.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:22:58 -0400)

Charlie and his mother walk around the neighborhood doing errands so that Charlie can write in his notebook about the people and places that make up his community.
