About the Author:

Robin Segal has worked as an artist and a policy consultant in urban transportation. She is the author of the All 'Bout Cities series. She lives in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2—These books take an alphabetical tour of several major American cities, using color photographs to represent the letters. The worthwhile concept builds vocabulary and familiarity with urban landscapes but is undermined by layouts that emphasize quantity over quality. Pages are crowded with too many illustrations of items that are sometimes generic ("joggers," "kids," and "trash cans" appear in all three books). On some pages the contrast between font and background color is minimal, making the text difficult to read. Redundant entries are common (the "W" page in Boston, for example, displays both "walk signal" and "walk signal button"). Miami includes a Spanish translation of each word, though in Spanish this is no longer an alphabet book. Sadly, the books lack maps or introductory paragraphs about what makes each place unique, historically and/or culturally.—Amy Rowland, Guggenheim Elementary School, Port Washington, NY
