    This Is London by Miroslav Sasek (cbl_tn)
    cbl_tn: Sasek's book, originally published in 1959, has been updated to reflect current information. Most of the landmarks are still famous today. Rubbino's book, first published in 2011, includes new landmarks like the London Eye that weren't around in 1959. The books nicely complement each other.… (more)

Recommended by Lauren B.

With its generous trim size and a mixture of primary and secondary text, this book very nearly replicates the experience of wandering through London. The maps on the endpapers are a good way to begin and end, and there is a fold-out of the Thames (I do wish each bridge had been labeled). The primary text tells the story of a mother and daughter exploring the city on a day trip; secondary text, in smaller font, provides great detail about the buildings, history, events (e.g. the changing of the guard), and more. Readers can delight in "visiting" the Tower of London, Covent Garden, and Buckingham Palace, and seeing the famous phone booths and double decker buses. ( )

In my opinion this is a very informational book. This book is abut a little girl and her mom that take a trip to London and visit different tourist sights. This book has a main story that carries out through the book, but it also has little informational facts on each page. I loved that about the book. For example, the little girl was hungry and her mom took her to the Covent Garden Piazza and one fact that was on the page was "Few roads in London are closed to traffic but Covent Garden Piazza is one of them."
I also enjoyed they illustrations of the book, It really brougt the story to life. ( )

What a fun book! I felt like I was on a guided tour myself. This would be a fun "first guide book" for a child who is interested in traveling. The art was great too.
