While playing in the city park, little Hugo wonders, "Who put these buildings here?" Hugo's mother leads him on a whirlwind trip through the city, the country, and everything in between to explain the answer. This engaging book is an easy introduction to the world of urban planning, and illustrates that "every building has its place."

I gave two copies of this charming book to a couple of inquisitive toddlers for Christmas. They love having the book read to them and they especially love the illustrations. This book is very engaging; chock full of trains, automobiles, bicycles, buildings, friendly characters (not to mention an adorable frog that leaps through the pages) and a very sweet story.
This is a delightful book that was very helpful in explaining to my four-year old what I do in my work. He enjoyed exploring the illustrations and everything from cows to stores. --Jennifer Evans-Cowley, PhD, AICP Associate Professor, City and Regional Planning, Austin E.
