Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Keri Collins Lewis
Cities with large populations need careful planning to meet the residents' needs for food, water, sanitation, electricity, and transportation. Zoning laws add structure to how cities are built so that communities function well. This title, part of the "Learn About Urban Life" series, looks at residential cities in general and Toronto, Canada, specifically to demonstrate the unique features of a large city with a multicultural and constantly increasing population. Clearly written blocks of information are broken into manageable sections and are in a large typeface to make reading easier. Author Boudreau includes fun trivia about Toronto while deftly covering basic factual information about daily life, local government, and services. The most intriguing aspect of the book, however, is the wide variety of scenes from urban areas around the world. From the Louvre Museum in Paris to the crowded streets of Delhi, India, young readers will marvel at the amazing diversity found in the world's residential cities. The book includes a table of contents, glossary, an index, a map, and a section with additional information about books and websites. Reviewer: Keri Collins Lewis
