It’s dark and quiet.
The moon still glimmers in the sky.
While the baker, the ferry boat captain, and the TV anchorman are busy at work, most people are cozily snuggled in bed. Then dawn’s first light peeks through the tree branches. Wake up, city! There is much to be done in neighborhoods all across the metropolis. As the morning gets brighter, the city streets bustle with people ready to begin the day. GOOD MORNING, CITY, by morning news anchor Pat Kiernan, is sure to start the day off right.
What a great display of things that happen each day in the city! The written in sounds would be fun to emulate with your child.
It’s fun for my city-dwelling kiddos to take an adventure-by-book to a farm or a jungle or a desert; it’s also fun to see a book that really celebrates the views and activities that are around us every day. The art is lovely and varied throughout the book. The text is well-written and concise. Whether you live in a city or not, this book is a great way to find wonder and magic in the vistas and drama of a city coming to life and beginning a beautiful day.
