Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The urban scene unfolds in City Signs by Zoran Milich, through 30 artistic photographs-a police car, school bus and construction site among them-all framed by wide white borders. The only text appears on the vehicles and signs. Carefully choreographed spreads teach themes or concepts, whether featuring a red car under an "enter" sign and another at an "exit" or a spread of pizza and ice cream vendors.

The 30 photographs here demonstrate that even children who can't yet read a book understand many of the words they see around them. The quality of the pictures is very good. They are nicely composed, clear, and often colorful.—Booklist

Many children with autism spectrum disorders love logos and signs. They are able to read words that have strong graphic shapes and bold colors, for example city signs! They also can identify and replicate them. Perfect for struggling readers, too. Special Educators take note! This beautiful book is perfect for any pre-reader / early reader.
