Inner City by Neil Thomson
"Where I Live" is a series looking at communities across the United Kingdom. In each case, a local person "guides" the reader around the area in which they live, talking about jobs and opportunities, housing, leisure activities and the people who live there. Focusing on an inner city area of Birmingham, this book looks at life in a less-advantaged community. The positive aspects of multi-cultural life and the community spirit are also emphasized. Neil Thomson wrote several of the "When I Was Young" books. This book supports the geography area of the National Curriculum at Key Stage 2. It provides resource material for anyone interested in researching their local community and is illustrated with specially-taken photographs of the community. A "Things to Do" section is included at the back of the book.
