In the City Our Scrapbook of Souvenirs by Roland Harvey


In the City Our Scrapbook of Souvenirs by Roland Harvey

The city is full of surprises!..We explored the underground sewers during a downpour, climbed inside the giantest scientist, smelt something stinky at the market and snuck up on the biggest barracuda in the aquarium...We had the BEST time in the city and you will too!..A brilliant companion to At the Beach and In the Bush.


There's a great deal to engage with the illustrations an invitation to look, look some more, and then look again.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
