All the color, motion, and sounds of a big city compressed into a high-energy board book whose shape echoes the urban skyline. This oversized board books traces a city across the span of a day- filled with the people, traffic, parks, streets, stores, and buildings that make up the town. The breadth of the urban experience may be all found here: from the bicyclist lazily gliding through the park to the raucous swooshhhh of traffic; from the clanging crash of construction work to the quiet of a sweeping streets cape as seen from a high-floor apartment building. Vibrant colors that zing with the heat rising from a steaming sidewalk are perfectly matched to a syncopated, sound filled, chant again-and-again text. Ingeniously die-cut pages reinforce the experience of the city skyline in a stylish pair of books that represent a tour-de-force performance by Sara Anderson.
