What Wee Read
Book of Cities by Piero Ventura
We can't get enough of this book. The text is a little advanced for our kids, but the charming illustrations of how people live, work, get around and have fun in major cities are so interesting and intricately detailed that every page is a chance to invent your own story. Our boys love pointing out the elaborate goings-on, like a tiny family of wiener dogs holding up traffic in London or a camel up to no good in the Middle East. Every time we “read” it, we see something new. Maybe one day, we’ll get around to reading it too.
