Synopsis

St.Louis Architecture for Kids by Lee Ann Sandweiss

Written and illustrated to appeal to children of all ages, St. Louis Architecture for Kids takes the reader, tourist, or resident on an exciting tour of the unique built landscape of the St. Louis region - from A to Z! The book's adorable tour guide, a character named Archy, narrates the journey in rhyme, with each letter of the alphabet corresponding to a St. Louis landmark. Lee Ann Sandweiss's playful poetry incorporates history and local lore while celebrating the beauty and charm of the region's architectural treasures. 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.
