Communities Near and Far gives young readers a basic look into data collection and how it affects different communities, both at home and around the world. This children's book includes text-based questions to develop reading skills and an extension activity that can be done at home or in the classroom. Each kid's book in the Data In Your World series focuses on a particular topic, giving readers an introduction to data and how it is relevant to their lives in school and around their community. Also included are an index, glossary, before- and after-reading questions, and an extension activity. Rourke proudly publishes respectful and relevant non-fiction and fiction titles that represent our diverse readers, and are designed to support reading on a level that has no limits!
