Jacob Lawrence in the City
by Susan Goldman Rubin
Ages 2-5 24 pages Chronicle April 2009 Board book    

There is something to be said for uncomplicated books that provide an introduction to the turning of chunky pages, the appearance of words, and vibrant illustrations. These are exactly the goals accomplished by Susan Goldman Rubinís Jacob Lawrence in the City. In it, she explores the hectic pace of the city from the traffic lights and construction to the walking of a dog and bouncing of a ball.

The fact that each illustration is a piece of art in itself merely adds to the appeal of this minimalist board book that will likely whet the appetite of young readers for more advanced reading choices.
