    I need a title of a children's book that is about some social studies concept for second graders ( community, community helpers, etc... I need this book so that I can teach the text to self connection to my students while integrating social studies. Or if you can think of a science title that will be good for teaching self to text.

    Mapping Penny's World is a great one, because they can link map making to making a map of their own classroom or school. Just an idea.

    \It is listed as K-3. The AR level is 3.5.

    I've used it for 2nd, and they understand it.
