My First Book of London by Charlotte Guillain


My First Book of London by Charlotte Guillain

A beautifully illustrated hardback picture book about one of the most exciting cities in the world! Aimed at families with young children each feature or building is introduced on a right-hand page in a clue style format - close up or not immediately obvious what it is. The reader then turns the page to discover the whole scene with the feature in it and to read the explanatory text. The final page in the sequence of four shows other features from the scene in vignette accompanied by background information about each one.


'This is an excellent introduction to London, featuring the places of most interest to children, and is an ideal school library resource.'
