Book Description: Cityblock explores city life in an exciting and unique way, from up in a high-rise building to down in the subway. Divided into three sections—things that go, things to see, and things to eat—it features 24 different aspects of city living. As with the other acclaimed books in the series, die-cut icons hint at the larger context on the next spread. Each section opens with a full city scene but gradually focuses in on the small, unique neighborhoods that make the city large and grand. This clever book will attract young readers living in a metropolis as well as those in the countryside with urban life that pops off each page.
As the children and their grandpa (I assume that's who it is from the illustrations) venture into the city they take all sorts of modes of transportation like the subway, a bus, and a ferry. Then they do a little sightseeing and visit a museum, flea market, and a gift shop. Hunger sets in and the group has some tacos, sushi, and ice cream proving the city is full of places to explore.
Cityblock is such a fun book and the vibrant illustrations add to the delight. I love how each page offers so much to be discovered and little ones will be captivated by all there is to see. This creative picture book is definitely worth adding to your bookshelf.
I highly recommend picking up a copy.
