About this title


Describes the effects of the nation's population growth in rhymed text and illustrations

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- Richard Scarry meets Virginia Burton in this exuberant primer on human diversity and the effects of urban sprawl. Through simple verse, Van Laan engages listeners in a rhythmic roll call of people found in a variety of city settings and engaged in various pursuits. Her use of words (``plumbers plumbing . . . drummers drumming'') is especially pleasing to read out loud and melodious to hear. The bouncy text's energy and motion are skillfully conveyed by Westcott's charmingly frenetic line drawings and riotously bright colors that fill the cityscapes. While the ``people everywhere'' come in all sizes and colors, her appealing characters are universally raisin-eyed, round-faced, and packed with personality. Children will enjoy examining the humorous, action-packed pictures for a rosy-cheeked boy in a red ball cap who traverses these pages, observing all. A slight storyline emerges when his family retreats to the less-populated countryside, only to be followed there by the inevitable shopping mall and ubiquitous housing developments. The denizens of the fledgling suburb are shown engaged in recycling, subtly introducing a cautionary note. Preschoolers will enjoy recognizing ``neighborhood friends'' (firefighters and police officers), while primary graders will gain an appropriately appealing and effortless introduction to civics and demographics. --Dorothy Houlihan, formerly at White Plains Public Library, NY
