Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Rachel Miller
Boston is a very busy city with a lot of activity. Here, the author uses photographs from the city as the basis for an alphabet book. Robin Segal has chosen practical pictures for each letter. Some of the pictures are objects that every city has, while others show features that are unique to Boston. Next to each photograph, the relevant word is clearly written in an easy-to-read font. The pictures are clear and highly detailed. Each page is very colorful, which will encourage the reader to pick up the book more than once. Because the alphabet letters have different numbers of pictures associated with them, readers will learn that some letters are more popular at the beginnings of words than are other letters. This is an excellent book to encourage reading and phonics. It would be an outstanding asset to a social studies curriculum as well as a reading program. This is a part of the "All About Cities" series. Reviewer: Rachel Miller
