Book review: Metropolis, by Benoit Tardif

Tardif, Benoit. Metropolis. Kids Can Press, 2016. $17.95. 72p. ISBN 9781771387217. Ages 5-8. P5Q5

tardif-metropolisVisuals highlight 34 cities from all continents in two-page spreads showing the country, language(s), population, and montages of people, culture, and landmarks. Simple sketches give a feeling of the past and seem generic with repetition of elements for several cities, perhaps to indicate commonalities rather than differences. Pronunciation guides for difficult names and definitions for esoteric terms would have been useful.
