Meet a family living in the city and enjoy a day in their company as they travel to work and to school, shop, relax in the park, enjoy a play, and eat dinner in a restaurant. As we follow them around the city, we learn what's under the ground, what's in the museum, how people get to work, what's behind the theater curtain, and much more. For children aged 3 and up, this beautifully illustrated nonfiction title is the perfect introduction to life in a big city. The unique design of the book allows children to discover a "hidden" image by holding the page up to a bright light.
