Summary

Triangles and towers. Bricks and blocks. Engineering and art. A city has all those--and more! Acclaimed author and photographer April Pulley Sayre explores the basic STEAM concepts that are always just around the corner with striking photographs and a lyrical, layered text. Cityscape celebrates the science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics of urban life.

April Pulley Sayre has turned her keen photographic eye to the art and architecture that fills every city. Stunning photographs illuminate basic STEAM concepts such as geometry (lines, angles, and shapes), transportation, power, building, construction, balance, and community, while also celebrating the beauty, diversity, and magic of human creativity and the written word.

This informational picture book features a rich, read-aloud text, remarkable full-color photographs, and excellent backmatter. Cityscape is an ideal resource for teaching how art, science, and design intersect and an accessible, awe-inspiring choice for story time.

Includes backmatter with information about the photographs and additional resources for STEAM activities.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Known for writing sound picture books about nature and illustrating them with exceptional photographs, Sayre now turns her lens toward cities, encouraging children to discover the urban environment. Her sharply focused, beautifully composed photos reveal the creativity of architecture and engineering, along with the patterns of lines and three-dimensional forms in a variety of buildings. Dramatic juxtapositions enliven the pages here, contrasting new with old, light with shadow, and rich colors with muted ones. In brief phrases that form rhyming verses, the text suggests ideas to consider while viewing the illustrations. Besides mentioning curves, shapes, reflections, and other visual elements within the photos, the words also draw attention to the mechanical systems that make the city's drawbridges and construction equipment work: "Gear teeth mesh. / Axles spin. / Pulley / and levers / haul up / and in." Nature flourishes in these cities, too, from a pigeon perching on a ledge to a towering stalk of flower buds that appears to rise higher than the skyscraper seen beyond it in the distance. Through pleasing verse, riveting illustrations, and an appended section of questions to explore, Sayre helps children discover the wonders to be found in urban settings. As this eye-opening book concludes, "Cities shine!""
