About the Book
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.

My Take on the Book
This book is a sturdy board book for young children. The illustrations are colorful with many details that a child and adult will enjoy looking at and discussing. Some pages are fold out so the reader can see a panoramic view of a scene. Some pages have "look through" windows like on a subway.

The main characters are an older adult and two children. The reader walks, rides on a ferry boat, helicopter, subway and a taxi as they explore the big city. The characters visit a museum, gift shop, listen to a street performer's music, and much much more. They eat pizza, apples , and even sushi.

Reading this book will be an enjoyable journey for a young child.
