Kidz Korner In the City

I went downtown this weekend for the first time in a long time and it got me thinking about books about the city.  So here are some of my finds.

The Adventures of Beekle by Dan Santat

An imaginary friend who never gets picked goes on an adventure to the city and finally finds his match and gets his name.

Nana In the City by Lauren Castillo

A little boy find Grandma's city scary so she makes him a cape and helps him see things differently.

The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton

A trip through the life of a house as it gets squeezed out by the big city that grows up around it.  A tale of changes.

Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey

It's not easy raising a family in the big city.  Just ask Mr. and Mrs. Mallard!  The story of their little family is enchanting.
Also have to mention that each one of these books is an award winner!  So until next week, keep on reading!
