Review: ABC of Toronto by Per-Henrik Gürth


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
This alphabet book celebrates the sights and sounds of Ontario's vibrant capital. Joining Per-Henrik G?rth's friendly animal characters as they explore Toronto from the Art Gallery of Ontario to the Zoo is as much fun as a ride on one of the city's famous streetcars!
MY TAKE:
I've never been to Toronto but I've always wanted to go there.

In ABC of Toronto, kids and adults can learn about different places and things associated with Toronto.

I was under the impression that most, if not all, of the letters would stand for specific places around Toronto. Obviously, this would be difficult so I can understand why some of the letters stand for more generic things like gardens or beaches. I would really have preferred it if there were more specific places, though, since then it would be sort of a guidebook. Although, for some letters, the letters stand for generic things but the descriptions mention specific places.

Given that, this book is still a nice guide to Toronto, especially for kids who have never been there.

Thanks to NetGalley and Kids Can Press for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:

  1. Kids can learn about the different places in Toronto.
  2. The book is very colorful.
  3. Kids can use it as a guide of places to go to if ever they're in Toronto.

THE BAD:

  1. The illustration style may not work for everyone.

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
Hh is for Hockey Hall of Fame,
a fan's favourite destination.

READ IT IF:

  1. Your kid likes travelling.
  2. You like books about different places.
  3. Your family will be going to Toronto any time soon.
