Ages 2-5. Where do city people live? What happens in a theater? What's under the street? Part of Time-Life's Library of First Questions and Answers series, this is an entertaining, informative introduction to the city and how it works. The pictures show a country child who drives in with her parents for a city vacation. A pigeon in "shades" and baseball cap acts as kindly commentator. For each question and answer, there's a double-page spread in cartoon and watercolors, bursting with all kinds of people, vehicles, and buildings. The language is simple, factual, and direct. The tone is upbeat (in fact, we don't need all the emphatic exclamation marks). The information is both elementary (Why do traffic lights change color?) and more technical (How does an elevator work?). The table of contents lists 22 questions; young children might like to start with just 1 or 2 at a time. City kids will enjoy seeing themselves as objects of tourism, and rural and suburban visitors will find this a lively guide. Pair it with A Prairie Year for a multicultural celebration. Hazel Rochman
