I live in the city. And I read to my kids.
I especially enjoy reading my kids books that reflect our every day environment: jam packed sidewalks, tall skyscrapers, hustle and bustle, apartment living and the other exciting experiences the city has to offer. Of course, such books are not just for city kids! If you live in the 'burbs or the country you will enjoy sharing these books with your children and talking about exciting faraway places and people.
I've never laid claim to being a great reviewer and since there are lots of wonderful people out there who write quality reviews analyzing plot, character and theme, I'm not going to try and reinvent the wheel. What I choose to focus on here is the way the story interacts with the City -- with a capital "C". Each post will have a "Want More?" section where I can send you off to further links to read thorough reviews. And if not... well, there's always Amazon.
