This large format book is perfect to read out in a playgroup or in a classroom. You will love the 32 illustrations by Ingela P. Arrhenius. It will remind you of the 40s and 50s art style.

There is one word about the city per page. You can promote language by asking questions, such as what is the name of your mailman? Is the school close to your house? What is your favourite restaurant?
