This book for emergent readers shares concise and fascinating information about pocket parks. Placed on small lots of land, these parks are sometimes no bigger than a parking space. Large, colorful photographs reinforce the details described and feature pocket parks from across the United States. The book draws on a child's natural interest in outdoor play areas to teach about pocket parks while delivering a simple geography lesson. Other potential teaching points include identifying main idea and details, summarizing information, and adjectives.
