Thanks to Marjie, Anne, Jeanne, Virginia, and Debbie for their help on my
request for current resources about communities (living in the city, in the
suburbs, on a farm) on a grades 2/3 level.   Here are their ideas:

**Walter Dean Myers has a picture book about HARLEM that I think you would
find interesting.  It is available in paperback.

**How communities are alike and different. -- Orangevale, CA : 100% Educ.
Videos, 1997.
    gr. K-3.
    1. Communities. 2. Primary.

Community Workers Kid Pix Activity Kit

**Old Henry by Blos
Aurora Means Dawn by Sanders
In coal country by Hendershot
Letting Swift RIver Go by Yolen
Garden of Happiness by Tamar
Adventures of Taxi Dog by Barracca

Shaker Lane by Provensen
Wake Up, City by Tresselt

**Have you tried Gareth Stevens Publications?  This
company has many books about communities, cities, etc.
 I've ordered from them many times and have always
been pleased.

Final note:  Some things that I have recently purchased include:

_What is a Community?_  Bobbie Kalman  (Crabtree, c2000)
_Communities_ Lisa Trumbauer (Capstone, c2001)
_I Live in a City_ Stasia Ward Kehoe (PowerKids Press, c1999)
_I Live in a Town_
_I Live on a Farm_

Again, thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to respond.
Your help was greatly appreciated!
