About this title:

Synopsis: For thousands of years, humans and their animal neighbors have congregated in cities. This comprehensive book traces the evolution of cities from Ancient Greece to modern Tokyo, Shanghai, Paris, and more. Timelines, sidebars, and diagrams depict this transformation in fascinating detail, while gorgeous, color photographs show the highs and lows of city life. A question and answer section at the end of the book will engage reluctant readers, while curious students will be happy to find a list of curated links, guiding them in further exploration of this diverse, and ever-changing habitat.

From Booklist: Beginning with the question, What is a city? this entry in the Discovery Education: Habitats series takes a wide-ranging look at the world of urban living. The fates of cities like Ur, Angkor Wat, and other locations lost to time are explored, before the enduring city of London is spotlighted alongside a time line spanning its origin as a Roman outpost to its 2003 push to encourage public transit among its citizens. The way urban centers contend with poverty, pollution, and even city wildlife are covered in a number of floating captions surrounding art that also depicts architecture, cultural events, and transportation. Readers are ultimately asked to consider some conundrums of city living—for instance, how cities should be powered, if heritage buildings should be protected, and where refuse should end up. A concise snapshot of urban dwelling throughout the ages, this title gives readers a peek at how humans have thrived in such a dense living space. Grades 4-6. --Courtney Jones
