About the Book



"Cityblock explores city life ... from up in a high-rise building to down in the subway. Divided into three sections--things that go, things to see, and things to eat--it features 24 different aspects of city living. As with the other ... books in the series, die-cut icons hint at the larger context on the next spread. Each section opens with a full city scene but gradually focuses in on the small, unique neighborhoods that make the city large and grand"--



Book Synopsis



From high up in a skyscraper to far below the ground in the subway, young readers will explore city life in a brand-new way in Cityblock, a fun addition to the Abrams Block Book series!

STARRED REVIEW *"A big urban adventure in a small package." ―Publishers Weekly

STARRED REVIEW *"Will delight young readers and grown-ups." ―School Library Journal

Divided into three sections--things that go, things to see, and things to eat--Cityblock features 24 different aspects of city living. Kids who live in, visit, or dream about New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, St. Louis, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and more will love getting to know how cities work from top to bottom.

Like the previous books in the series, Cityblock has die-cut shapes on every spread and durable, interactive fold-out pages, perfect for little hands. Each section opens with a full city scene but gradually focuses in on the small, unique neighborhoods that make the city special.

This clever book will attract young readers living in urban hubs and suburbia alike with its bright, animated, retro-inspired artwork by Peski Studio. This is a must-have book for the little city slicker in your family.
