Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The urban scene unfolds in City Signs by Zoran Milich, through 30 artistic photographs-a police car, school bus and construction site among them-all framed by wide white borders. The only text appears on the vehicles and signs. Carefully choreographed spreads teach themes or concepts, whether featuring a red car under an "enter" sign and another at an "exit" or a spread of pizza and ice cream vendors. Ages 2-5.

From Booklist

PreS-K. Milich took to the streets with his camera, looking for printed words found in various outdoor environments. The 30 photographs here demonstrate that even children who can't yet read a book understand many of the words they see around them. The quality of the pictures is very good. They are nicely composed, clear, and often colorful. Of course the print is prominent in all of them, and in most cases the setting makes the words or phrase easy to understand. One photograph shows a storefront window with the word pizza printed on it in large letters and someone nearby holding a pizza. A railroad crossing sign is shown with a train in the background. Some words won't be as easily recognized, especially by young children who live in rural areas. But most kids will find enough that's familiar to feel successful, and hopefully they will come away more aware of the words they see every day. Preschools and day-care centers can use this before setting off on a walking field trip through a city or suburban area. Lauren Peterson

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just got this book today and am very dissapointed. I was looking for a book with some traffic signs my son sees in the streets. Instead there are just pictures of mostly vehicles, which is ok, but not related to signs at all. Here is what is inside: back of police car, a photo of fire station entrance, an ambulance, three taxis in a row, a bus stop with approaching bus, a school bus, a school crossing guard, a sign of railroad crossing, a horse in the zoo standing next to "horses"sign, the word PARK written on a fence, a lifeguard standing next to swimming pool, a changing cabin with the word BEACH on it, a street vendor with ICE CREAM on the window, somebody's hand holding a pizza in front of window saying PIZZA, a litter box, then another one, a supermarket entrance, lemons on sale 4 for 1 dollar, a door with the word PULL on it, then another with PUSH, a parking lot entrance, a parking lot exit, car wash, a used cars dealer, a bicycle, the sign BUMP on the road, CONSTRUCTION sign, ROAD CLOSED and STOP sign. For me it is totally useless and I will have to search again for what I need.

I'm a speech language pathologist and I love using this book with my emerging readers who are just beginning to identify "words" by their visual shapes. The photographs are extra appealing because they are immersed in the real context - giving the child extra support.
