A city is a place where thousands or sometimes millions of people live and work. This exciting new book looks at homes in cities including houses in the suburbs, apartment buildings, and shanty towns. Detailed photography shows what these kinds of homes are made from, what they look like inside, and what other kinds of buildings are found in cities, such as schools, stores, and skyscrapers. Other interesting topics include transportation and how people living in cities are affected by extreme temperatures, earthquakes, hurricanes, and smog. A world map identifies the cities and countries featured in the book. Teacher’s guide available.

Reviews
City Homes

"While these books only contain basic information they will be useful to young readers who are learning about homes around the world which is quite often a topic in primary and early elementary and social studies programs. They can also serve as a jumping off point for further research through the books and websites which are listed for readers who want to do a little more in depth study of the topic." —Resource Links, 02/08
