A new series on Community Helpers

Enslow has just published an eight book series on community helpers, geared toward the preschool and beginning reader. The role of the community helper gives the reader the opportunity to ask "who, what, when, where, and why" questions.

Library ISBN 978-0-7660-4045-8
Teachers and Nurses are two titles helpful for those first-time students, explaining what the people in those positions do, and how they interact with the student.

Other titles in the series include: Dentists, EMTs, Firefighers, Nurses, Police Officers, Sanitation Workers, and Veterinarians.

Years ago, my sister worked as a nanny for a family with three children. The youngest child loved going to the firehouse. It literally became an almost-daily visit. The firemen quickly learned both of their names and would greet them as they approached the building. Is this child a fireman today? No, but his fascination with the trucks, the building, and the firemen themselves kept him wanting to go back. Do you know of a child like him?

It's National EMS Week

Library ISBN 978-0-7660-4050-2
This year's theme is "EMS: More Than A Job. A Calling." Being an EMT is not an easy job. EMTs work hours somewhat similar to police officers and fire personnel: they work nights, on holidays, and are never quite sure what to expect upon arriving on a scene.

Enslow's latest preschool series, All About Community Helpers, includes a title on EMTs. This 24 page book will help young students and beginning readers learn about this important job in our community. Other titles in the series include titles about dentists, firefighters, nurses, police officers, sanitation workers, teachers, and veterinarians.
