Title: On the Town: A Community Adventure
Description: Armed with a new black notebook and a homework assignment to explore his community and the people who live in it, Charlie and his mother walk around town and think about what the boy should write down. They run a variety of familiar errands that help him understand the many different establishments that make up his community—such as the bank, the post office, the fire station and the barbershop—and he draws pictures of the people he meets in each locale.
