The text is complemented by full-color collage illustrations that combine the whimsy of Phyllis Harris's delightful characters and Gen Obata's evocative architectural photography. From the Gateway Arch to the world-famous Zoo, St. Louis Architecture for Kids is a must-have book for anyone who loves the urban landscape and wants to ignite curiosity and appreciation for the built environment in youngsters.
