As a literacy teacher, I might use this text to teach my students about using descriptive words to describe their environment.The author in this text uses words that are supported by the illustrations (ex. “Traffic signals change from red to green. Late buses stop or go. Doormen whistle. A taxi horn honks).This type of style will help students make a stronger connection in their reading by using the illustrations as a visual support. The images in the text teach children about diversity within community cultures, but not so much on race or ethnicities. Overall, I would say that this is a great book to incorporate into your lesson when teaching about differences in communities.
