Fact Friday: 50 Cities of the U.S. A. by Gabrielle Balkan
50 Cities of the U.S. A. by Gabrielle Balkan. 112 p. Wide Eyed Editions/ Quarto Group, September, 2017. 9781847808707. (Review of finished copy courtesy of publisher.)
Fact Friday features a great book for young browsers or readers who love to travel. This colorful oversize volume cannot be read in one sitting - there is just too much to take in. The author highlights fifty U.S. cities but not all fifty states are represented as some states, such as Texas, have two cities highlighted.
Arranged alphabetically by city, each double-page spread is crammed with maps, facts, famous denizens, trivia and suggestions for what to do during a day in the city. This is a terrific way to get lost in a book and learn a bit of geography.
